According to The Athletic, sources close to the situation have claimed the distraction caused by speculation linking Antonio Conte with the Paris Saint-Germain job will be irritating Daniel Levy.

Le Parisien reported this week that Conte is on PSG’s shortlist to replace Mauricio Pochettino and that the Italian has offered himself to the Ligue 1 giants on a two-year contract.

It has subsequently been reported by The Times that the 52-year-old’s potential move to PSG could open the door for Mauricio Pochettino to complete a sensational return to Spurs.

However, The Athletic claim that there is an ‘acceptance’ among the Spurs hierarchy that volatility is part of the package when you appoint someone like the former Inter Milan boss.

The report further adds that some within the club feel Conte has hardly dampened the speculation over the last couple of months by refusing to talk about his future at Spurs beyond the immediate term.

The point about Conte hardly dampening the speculation is a very valid one. One would imagine that one of the first questions the Italian will be asked in his next press conference is about the PSG speculation.

If he refuses to spell out in clear terms that he is committed to the Spurs project, it will be a clear red flag. That would only create more doubts in the players’ minds amidst our pursuit of Champions League qualification.

Have something to tell us about this article?


  1. Ridiculous. Just because so called journalists invent stories, Conte has to give these people respect and answer their lies? Would you entertain someone if you knew they were making things up about you just for clicks and sales? No evidence, no quotes, no sources. The arrogance and lack of self awareness amongst these hustlers is remarkable and you simply fuel this industry by buying into the lie culture. None of you are actual journalists, just grifters trying to please advertisers. Play your little games by all means, but don’t be surprised when grown ups ignore you and get on with the real work.
