Conte ready to discuss contract extension with Spurs at the end of the season


Tottenham Hotspur coach Antonio Conte has expressed his commitment to the club and said he would discuss a possible contract extension at the end of the season.

Conte joined Spurs in November on an 18-month contract, but the Italian coach briefly questioned his own future at the club following Spurs’ defeat to Burnley in February.

However, he has retracted his statement and was prepared but has since retracted his statement. “At the moment there is only one truth – I am committed to this club for one more year,” Conte said in his pre-match press conference against Manchester United, quoted by Reuters on Saturday.

“After four months I think the club has understood the way I want to work and I understand the club.”

“In three months, at the end of the season, we will continue to improve our knowledge of each other and then find the best solution for both,” he added. “I enjoy working for this club. I like fighting for something important for this club.”

Conte also stressed the importance of planning for the future and added that signing Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur in January was a step in the right direction.

“I think it’s very important to develop good vision, because when you have good vision in football and you have a lot of expectations, you can be successful,” Conte said.

“In January we showed that we were just starting to improve the situation. We need a big improvement, and we have already started to do this with the new players.”

“But in the future, you need to have another important step and have ambition.” (OL-4)
