The Athletic have reported that well-placed sources at Tottenham Hotspur were ‘unanimous’ on Thursday that they do not see Antonio Conte being in charge next season.

Conte looked exasperated after Tottenham fell to a 1-0 loss against Burnley on Wednesday, which was the club’s fourth defeat in five Premier League games.

The Athletic have now claimed that sources at the North London club do not expect the Italian to be in charge next season.

However, it is said that Conte is not expected to leave soon as resigning would be damaging to the 52-year-old’s reputation since he has only just taken the job.

The report goes on to add that Conte is unlikely to walk without having another job to go to and he is ‘extremely unlikely’ to end up at another Premier League club anytime soon.

Manchester United are thought to prefer Mauricio Pochettino to replace Ralf Rangnick at the end of the season, with the Argentine also said to be Real Madrid’s number one choice.

Walking away would certainly not be good for Conte’s reputation. Perhaps, that is why he seemingly asked Spurs to sack him on Wednesday. I would Conte to leave at the club if he feels he is not up for the challenge of improving the side.
