Amidst Tottenham’s struggles over recent weeks, reports have indicated that Conte might not last too long at the North London club, with the Lilywhites said to be eyeing the likes of Mauricio Pochettino and Thomas Tuchel as his replacement (TMW).

However, following Spurs’ win over Craven Cottage last night, the 53-yea-old remarked that he is ‘really proud to be Tottenham manager’ (Daily Mail).

Kane revealed after the 1-0 win that the Spurs players had a meeting among themselves and resolved to do all they can to help Conte, who is going through a tough time.

The 29-year-old told Sky Sports (23/01/23 – 22:15 onwards – as relayed by Yahoo Sports): “He’s been through a difficult time outside of football with his personal life. Being part of a team, it’s not just the players on the pitch. It’s the manager, the staff and being there for each other.

“We want to win every game for him, he puts so much passion and effort into every game and every training session. We want to repay him with victories.

“We had a good meeting amongst ourselves with the manager in the week, just to talk amongst ourselves to get back to what we’re good at. We’re going to keep fighting. The manager’s a fighter, he’s a really passionate manager. We’ve got to keep working hard for him.”

Whatever one feels about Conte’s tactics and some of his statements to the media, it is clear that the Tottenham players love working with him and are prepared to give their all in service of the Italian’s ideas. It is clear from Kane’s statement here that Conte has not lost the Spurs dressing room despite the poor performances and results of late.
