Antonio Conte was asked whether he intends to see out his contract at Tottenham in his North London Derby pre-match press conference today.

The Spurs head coach revealed that he is enjoying his time in North London and wants to work hard to improve the club’s situation.

He also reiterated that he signed the contract because it was not only best for him but also best for the club, allowing Tottenham to see what kind of coach they were working with.

Conte only put pen to paper on a deal that will take him up to the end of next season, although Spurs are said to have an option to extend it further (Standard).

He also explained recently that he didn’t want to force Tottenham into paying his large wages for an extended period of time without first having to prove himself.

Most Spurs fans will certainly be hoping to see plenty of the Italian boss over the next couple of years at least.

Conte said (Football London): “You know very well that I signed a contract and we agreed, Tottenham and I, the length of the contract.

“I think was good for me to see the situation and for the club to understand the coach they’re going to work with. Now, I repeat, I’m enjoying my time in Tottenham.

“I found a fantastic atmosphere, a great stadium, a great training ground, our fans are incredible because they always back us from the start to the end, and I’m enjoying my time in Tottenham.

“For sure, we want and I want to improve the situation. I think all the people, we want and deserve much more than this.”

Spurs Web Opinion:

I certainly hope that Conte stays at Spurs for the full 18-months, plus the extension beyond that. However, it will likely come down to whether Levy and Lewis back him sufficiently in the summer transfer window.
