As Mauricio Pochettino’s future hangs in the balance at Paris Saint-Germain, rumours continue to surface about Antonio Conte’s subsequent departure. Reports have suggested that Conte has already offered up his services to the French Giants, further adding to the speculations about his true interests in becoming Pochettino’s replacement, as fans prepare for a supposed “Super Swap.”
And although Antonio has dismissed these talks as “fake news”, he still has not committed to remaining at Spurs for the 2022-23 season.
The 52- year old Italian joined our Family in November, following the sacking of Nuno Espirito Santo, and had signed a contract up until 2023.
Conte has been linked with the role at PSG, despite them winning the Ligue 1 title under Pochettino, but had dismissed the claims indefinitely.
“I think that it’s good that other clubs appreciate my work,”
“But the truth is that I don’t like when people try to invent news — only to speak, only to create problems.
“This is not right, not fair for me, for the clubs involved, and for my players.
“Also because we are really focused on these five games to get a fantastic result for us.
“But I think that also the people that want to tell something about this have to show respect for all the people involved in this situation, and not invent fake news and tell a lot of lies.”
After being asked to reassure Spurs fans who may be worried about him leaving in the summer, he refused to confirm he would remain in north London.
It’s a big opportunity for us because no one can imagine to stay and fight for this target, in this league now in this moment,”
“In the past, it was different but now you know very well what I said in the past that it would be a miracle to get this achievement.
“Now it would be very important to be focused and not listen to fake news and the people that for sure want to create problems for the environment.
“We have to play these five games and then you know, because I answer a lot of times, that at the end of the season in a private way I will speak with my club and I will see the best solution.”Antonio Conte
Spurs are fifth in the League with five games left to play, two points behind Arsenal in the final qualification spot for next season’s Champions League. They are away at Anfield versus Liverpool on Saturday.
