Tottenham have parted company with Antonio Conte and most of his backroom staff, with Cristian Stellini placed in charge on an interim basis until the end of the season.
The Italian contract was due to expire at the end of the 2022/23 campaign, but Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy has decided to act now.
A club statement read:
“We can announce that head coach Antonio Conte has left the club by mutual agreement.
“We achieved Champions League qualification in Antonio’s first season at the club.
We thank Antonio for his contribution and wish him well for the future.”
The former Chelsea and Inter manager slammed his players, accusing them of being ‘selfish’ and lacking fight,
will he also appeared to take aim at the culture of the club having failed to win a trophy in the last 15 years.
“We have ten Premier League games remaining and we have a fight on our hands for a Champions League place. We all need to pull together.
“Everyone has to step up to ensure the highest possible finish for our club and amazing, loyal supporters.”
Cristian Stellini will take the team as acting head coach for the remainder of the season, along with Ryan Mason as assistant head coach.
