The “disrespectful” rumors that Antonio Conte would be enticed to quit Tottenham for a second stint at Juventus have prompted the Italian coach to respond angrily. The highly regarded Italian tactician played for and managed the Bianconeri for three seasons (2011–2014), during which time the club won three consecutive Serie A championships.
It has been speculated that Conte might be enticed back to Turin by an attractive offer, what with Juve’s poor performance under Massimiliano Allegri with his contract expiring in the summer of 2019.
Conte, who is focused on Premier League and Champions League quests at Spurs, insists that is not the case and has responded to those questioning his commitment and loyalty by saying, “This is disrespectful for the coach that works in Juventus and also disrespectful for me working for Tottenham.
There is no “right time,” as the saying goes (to sign a contract). That day might come tomorrow. It’s possible that today is the final day of the Premier League season. To know that the club and I are headed in the same direction is the single most crucial thing. I will make the correct choice at the proper time. Just now, at this very moment, my life is perfect.
Overarchingly, after taking over as manager in November 2021, Antonio Conte led Tottenham to a top-four finish in his first season. The objective for 2022–23 is to build on that success as the team tries to end a 15-year trophy drought. Spurs will face rivals Arsenal in a local derby at Emirates Stadium. Spurs are one of only two Premier League teams undefeated so far this season.
