Former Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has said his goodbye to fans of Spurs through a letter he posted on social media on Monday.
The Lilywhites parted ways with Conte on Sunday by mutual consent, days after his explosive post match interview following Tottenham Hotspur’s 3-3 share of the spoils with Southampton.
Tottenham Hotspur thanked the Italian for his contribution and they wished him well for the future. His assistant at Spurs, Cristian Stellini would be in charge of the team as head coach till the end of the campaign.
Stellini would be assisted by Ryan Mason as they look to ensure that the North London side finishes the season in a good position.
Antonio Conte in a post put out via his Instagram and Facebook accounts sent out a letter of appreciation to the club alongside fans of the club.
His post reads: “Football is passion. I would like to deeply thank everyone at SPURS who appreciated and shared my passion and my intense way of living football as a coach.
“A special thought to the Fans who always showed me support and appreciation, it’s been unforgettable to hear them singing my name.
“Our journey together has ended, I wish you all the best for the future.”
During his first season as manager of Tottenham Hotspur, he guided the team to a UEFA Champions League spot as he finished 4th in his first season.
The Italian is the third manager to exit the club since the dismissal of Mauricio Pochettino in 2019. He is also the seventh manager to be fired since Tottenham Hotspur last won a trophy in 2007 under Juande Ramos.
Conte coached Tottenham Hotspur in 76 games and he won 41 matches, sharing the spoils on 12 occasions and losing 23. He mustered a 53.9% record but he couldn’t deliver any silverware to the club.
The former manager of Inter Milan was the manager of the English club from the 2nd of November 2021 till the 26th of March 2023.
Antonio Conte is a manager full of life and highly electric on the touchline in addition to also being notable for having squabbles with the hierarchy of clubs he manages.
The Chairman of Tottenham Hotspur has called for focus and togetherness from his players in order for them to have a desirable result in the remainder of matches this season.
Daniel Levy said: “We have 10 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.”
Tottenham Hotspur are 4th on the Premier League table, one point behind Manchester United, although the Reds have two outstanding games left to play.
