The era of Antonio Conte in London is over. After the reports during the last week regarding the fact that the Italian coach will end his position at Tottenham, tonight (between Sunday and Monday), the official announcement of the club arrived which determined the end of his journey. The one who will stand on the lines of the Roosters until the end of the season is Conte’s assistant, Christian Stallini.
The club’s announcement stated: “We can announce that head coach Antonio Conte has left the club by mutual consent. We achieved Champions League qualification in Antonio’s first season at the club. We thank Antonio for his contribution and wish him success for the future. Christian Stallini will take the team as the actual head coach for the rest of the season, along with Ryan Mason as the assistant coach.”
Spurs owners, Daniel Levisaid: “We have ten Premier League games left and we have a fight for a place in the Champions League. We all need to unite. Everyone needs to move forward to ensure the best possible finish for our club and our amazing and loyal supporters.”

It was clear even before the announcement of his departure that the coach would not continue beyond his contract which was supposed to expire this summer, but alongside the lack of success in the Champions League, he was close to losing fourth place in the Premier League and of course the straw that broke the camel’s back – the statements against the players and management at the end of the game against Southampton that made Daniel Levy, the owner of the Spurs, put an end to it.
The Italian who was signed to the team for the 2021/22 season after winning the Italian championship with Inter arrived with great fanfare and now, after his dismissal, his time at the club can be characterized as a failure as someone who was brought in to win the title for the Roosters, with the aim of promoting them beyond fourth place and qualifying for the Champions League.
Now, who has a Premier League championship, an FA Cup win, four Italian league championships and coaching the Italian national team on his resume, he will look for his next stop, this time maybe outside of England.
