Following Saturday’s 3-3 draw with Southampton, the 53-year-old Italian manager lashed out at the team and its members.

Numerous Spurs players, according to Futballnews, want Conte fired.

Daniel Levy, the chairman, is reportedly preparing to break off his relationship with Conte, according to The Telegraph.

Ryan Mason is anticipated to serve as interim manager through the completion of the campaign.

The first match for Spurs following the break will be on April 3 at Everton – and they will be looking to hang onto their fourth-place Premier League standing.

Newcastle, who are in fifth position but have two games left, are two points behind Tottenham.

Although they have played three fewer games, Brighton is only seven points behind Liverpool and is still in the running.

The Spurs supporters harshly criticized Conte’s enraged tirade.

The Italian remarked: “I think it’s better to go into the problem, we are not a team.”

“We are 11 players that go into the pitch. I see selfish players, players that don’t want to help each other and don’t put their heart [into it].”

“This season compared to last, now we are worse in this aspect. When you are not a team you cannot improve.”

Conte added: “They don’t play for something important, yeah. They don’t want to play under pressure, they don’t want to play under stress.”

“It is easy in this way. Tottenham’s story is this, 20 years there is the owner and they never won something but why? The fault is only for the club, or for every manager that stay here.”

“I have seen the managers that Tottenham had on the bench. You risk to disrupt the figure of the manager and to protect the other situation in every moment.”

“Until now I try to hide the situation but now, no, because I repeat I don’t want to see what I have seen today.”

“Everyone has to take their responsibility. Not only the club, the manager and the staff.”

“The players have to be involved in this situation because it is time to change this situation if Tottenham want to change. They can change the manager, a lot of managers, but the situation cannot change. Believe me.”

Five managers who might take Antonio Conte’s job at Tottenham

We have looked at five possible long-term replacements, including Zinedine Zidane, Thomas Tuchel, and Mauricio Pochettino.

Zinedine Zidane

Football legend Zinedine Zidane has previously been mentioned in connection with the positions at Manchester United and Chelsea.

The former Real Madrid coach reportedly declined the opportunity to lead United due to the language issue.

Yet the 50-year-old may suddenly be a contender for the Spurs’ vacant coaching position.

Throughout his two stints as manager, Zidane led Los Blancos to three Champions League victories, but he hasn’t landed a job since May 2021.

Thomas Tuchel

In September of last year, Chelsea sacked German coach Thomas Tuchel.

Spurs have a history of bringing in former Blues managers – Jose Mourinho and Conte, though this hasn’t always been a success.
