Napoli unhappy with Conte, Tottenham more indifferent at No. 1…hopes to return to Juventus eventually

October 12, 2023 | by

Former Tottenham manager Antonio Conte’s move to Napoli has fallen through.

Fabrizio Romano, an expert on the European transfer market, said on his social media account on Wednesday (KST), “Conte had a long direct conversation with Napoli today. The negotiations were not positive as he chose to continue waiting for new opportunities.” “Napoli president De Laurentiis spoke directly with Conte, but no agreement was reached. Conte prefers to wait for a new job.

Conte also took to social media on the same day to say, ‘There are constant rumors that I am close to an influential club, but for now I want to continue to rest and spend time with my family.

He was relieved of his duties as Tottenham boss in March. He criticized Tottenham’s “winning mentality”. “Money can’t buy that,” he said, but there was no turnaround.

After Conte’s departure, Spurs finished eighth in the English Premier League (EPL) last season. This season, however, is a different story. 안전놀이터

Enze Postecoglou has taken over the reins and has turned things around. Spurs are the surprise leaders of the EPL after eight rounds of the 2023-2024 season. They have 20 points (6 wins and 2 draws). They haven’t lost a single game in eight matches.

Arsenal, who have the same number of points and goal difference, are second on goal difference, followed by Man City (18-6 W, 2 D) and Liverpool (17-5 W, 2 D, 1 L) in third and fourth.

Conte attended the 100th anniversary of the Annelli family’s purchase of Juventus on Tuesday. He told Sky Sport Italia: “I’m resting and having a good time with my family. Right now I’m enjoying this atmosphere and what’s happening around me,” he told Sky Sport Italia, reiterating that “my decision to leave Tottenham was the right one”.

Napoli, who reached the top of Serie A for the first time in 33 years last season, currently sit fifth with 14 points (W4 D2 L2). Conte is a Juventus legend, having won eight Serie A titles as a player and manager.
