In terms of atmosphere, Tottenham seemed to be changing the command tower faster than Bayern Munich. However, the news of the sacking of manager Antonio Conte has not been heard yet. For what reason?
According to the British media’The Bootroom’ on the 25th (Korean time), Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy wants to have a final talk with coach Conte, who has gone to his home country Italy ahead of the March A-match period, face-to-face in England.
The media said, “It is clear that President Levy is thinking about the resignation of coach Conte.” President Levy wants to put an end to his journey after meeting Conte face-to-face, which is also the reason why the ‘hard official’ is being delayed.
Conte, who took over at Tottenham in November 2021, is under contract with the club until this summer. If he puts down the Tottenham baton now, Tottenham will have to pay him a penalty. Levy has more things to discuss with manager Conte than expected.
In addition, ‘The Bootroom’ said that another reason why Tottenham is not conveying the news of Conte’s resignation is that they have not yet decided on the next manager.
The media said, “Tottenham do not want to entrust coach Mason as acting manager. However, he added, “The manager who will take over in March with the task of saving Tottenham for the rest of the season is also not suitable.”
Conte’s departure seems to be a foregone conclusion. It’s just a matter of time. Even until he took the Tottenham baton in 2021, the trust in Conte was great. But recently everything has been blown up.
Conte has made no secret of his dissatisfaction with the club and some Tottenham players lately.
He said in an interview after finishing the league game with Southampton, the bottom of the English Premier League (EPL), in a 3-3 draw on the 19th, “We were not a team. There were some selfish players. Also, I couldn’t get a glimpse of responsibility.”
As of the 22nd, Tottenham ranked 4th in the EPL, but was eliminated early from the Carabao Cup (League Cup) and the English Football Association (FA) Cup. Also, in the UEFA Champions League, AC Milan (Italy) failed to reach the quarterfinals. 스포츠토토
In this situation, the atmosphere of Tottenham cooled down as they drew with Southampton, the league’s last place, which they had to catch.
“For 20 years, Tottenham has been run by the same owner,” Conte said. Even if the manager is changed, the situation is not likely to improve,” he criticized the Tottenham leadership in bitter words.
Meanwhile, Bayern Munich, a prestigious German Bundesliga club, said on its website that it had parted ways with Julian Nagelsmann, who had been in charge of the club since 2021, and announced that “(Chelsea former coach) has signed a contract with Thomas Tuchel until June 2025.” .
Munich (52 points), which dominated the Bundesliga, is running second in the league after leader Dortmund (53 points) this season.
Second place is also a good result, but it is a ranking that Munich would be proud of. A 1-2 loss in an away game against Bayer Leverkusen on the 20th virtually decided the sacking of Nagelsmann.
Coach Tuchel won the 2019-2020 European Football Federation (UEFA) Champions League runner-up at Paris Saint-Germain, and in the 2020-2021 season, he lifted the UEFA Champions League championship as the Chelsea command tower.
