After 16 months in charge, Tottenham Hotspur Manager, Antonio Conte, has resigned from the position by mutual consent.
In a news conference following their recent 3-3 draw at Southampton, the Italian labelled Spurs players “selfish” and slammed the club’s culture.
Following the outburst, many anticipated Conte, who flew back to Italy, to be fired.
In the wake of the controversial press conference, Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy described Conte’s position as untenable and has since parted ties with the Italian,who has also seen service as Juventus Manager.
Conte’s assistant, Cristian Stellini, will take over as Head Coach for the remainder of the season, with former player Ryan Mason serving as his deputy.
“We have 10 Premier League games remaining and we have a fight on our hands for a Champions League place,” Levy stated on Sunday night.
He added: “We must all work together.
“Everyone must pitch in to secure the best possible finish for our team and our incredible, loyal supporters.”
Spurs are looking for their fourth permanent manager in four years, following the departure of Mauricio Pochettino in 2019.
Steve Cooper, Roberto De Zerbi, Olivier Glasner, Luis Enrique, and recently fired Bayern Munich Manager Julian Nagelsmann are all in the running to replace Conte.
