Conte on why he didn’t move to Tottenham last summer



Former Chelsea coach Antonio Conte in a recent statement, has revealed why he didn’t join Tottenham Hotspur last summer despite interest from the North London club for him at that time.

Conte, in a statement, revealed he had only left Inter Milan at that time, and it would be wrong for him to move to another club so early.

The former Chelsea and Juventus coach won the Italian Seria A with Inter but opted out of the club willingly, a move that continued to surprise many.

Speaking after his new appointment, Conte was quoted by Tottenham’s official website as saying: “I’m extremely happy to return to coaching, and to do so at a Premier League club that has the ambition to be a protagonist again.
