For the first time, Tottenham Hotspur head coach, Antonio Conte has revealed his desire to remain at the club for another season. 

The Lilywhites have enjoyed some highs and endured some lows under the Italian so far, with his tenure showing both progress and inconsistency.

A historic 3-2 win away to Man City was followed up by a 1-0 defeat to relegation-threatened Burnley. Then a 4-0 victory over Leeds United was followed by an FA Cup exit at the hands of Middlesbrough.

With Tottenham beating Everton 5-0 last time out, Spurs fans will be understandably nervous about what is to come at Old Trafford against Man United tomorrow.

But it appears Conte is keen to stick around and win trophies with Spurs, as long as the club back up their ambition with facts – assumedly a nod towards the summer transfer window.

Conte said (Football London): “For sure at the moment there is only one truth – I am committed to this club for another year,” he said. “The club wanted this type of situation and I accepted it because it was good to get to know each other.

“After four months I think the club have understood the way I want to work and I understand the club. We have three more months till the end of the season to continue to improve our knowledge of each other and then to find the best solution for both.
