Antonio Conte Takes a Dig at Tottenham Claiming He Would ‘Like to Coach a Team Who Has Recently Won’

Antonio Conte has recently made some intriguing comments that appear to target his ex-club while also shedding light on his aspirations to return to the world of football management.

Conte has been heavily linked with a potential move to Napoli, where he has expressed a strong desire to take the helm as the club’s head coach. Speculations are rife that Napoli might part ways with their current boss, Rudi Garcia, which has only fueled further talk of Conte’s impending arrival.

Conte candidly shared his thoughts with Gazetta dello Sport, stating, “One day I would like to train a team that has recently won because, for example, I took Chelsea coming off seventh place, Juve were seventh too.”

Meanwhile, Tottenham, under their new permanent manager Ange Postecoglou, have made an impressive start to the season, remaining unbeaten and sharing the top spot in the league after eight games.

As for Conte, he may soon find himself back in the world of football management, especially with reports suggesting he is eager to take the reins at Napoli. However, during his interview with Gazetta, Conte remained tight-lipped about his future destination, saying, “Now I have unplugged to spend more time with my family and for myself. I continue studying, seeing what changes there are in the sport and understanding new situations. When I do return, I will be even more ready to handle the top challenges.”

He further emphasized his dedication to family, revealing, “After Tottenham, I promised to dedicate time to family; it’s a lifestyle choice. After that, I will be ready to get back to the battle. And when I do, it will be tough for everyone else.”
