Conte thanks fans who shared his ‘passion’ after Tottenham exit


March 28, 2023

Antonio Conte has thanked Tottenham’s fans for their “support and appreciation”,
while also saying he welcomed those at the club who shared his passion for football.
The 53-year old Italian left by mutual consent on Sunday after 16 months in charge,
his exit coming following a furious post-match interview on 19 March.
On Instagram, Conte said the fans had always given him vocal support. But the
“journey together has ended, I wish you all the best.”
Conte called the Spurs players “selfish” and was stinging in his criticism of the club’s
culture after his side squandered a two-goal lead as they drew 3-3 at Southampton
before the international break.
His former assistant Cristian Stellini will step up as head coach for the rest of the
season, with former midfielder Ryan Mason his deputy.
