Conte threatens to leave Tottenham

 Antonio Conte has warned Tottenham he could quit if he no longer enjoys the challenge of trying to turn the club into serious challengers for major trophies.

Conte has been a domestic league title winner with Inter  Milan, Chelsea and Juventus.

The 53-year-old led Totten­ham to an impressive fourth place finish in the Premier League last season, an achievement he dubbed a “miracle” after he arrived to find the club in turmoil in late 2021.

But Conte has repeatedly spo­ken about the need for patience as he tries to build the foundations for sustained success at a club who last won a trophy in 2008.

Tottenham’s inconsistent form this term has raised concerns the Italian might not stick around if he doesn’t get the backing he wants from chairman Daniel Levy to upgrade his squad in the trans­fer market.

Speaking ahead of yesterday’s trip to Crystal Palace, Conte, who is out of contract at the end of the season, made it clear he knows the size of the task facing him at Tottenham.

“Here, I understood that my task is different. My task here is to help the club, to build a solid foundation, to create a base and then to try to improve,” he said.

“If you ask me, the challenge for you is to win the Premier League, to win the Champions League; but this is not the task here in this moment.” -AFP
