- Despite his recent complaints, the Italian coach, with a contract for another year, does not rule out going further: “I would like to fight for something important here”
|Antonio Conte says now that he hopes to continue many years at Tottenham|
Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has expressed his commitment to the club and said he would discuss a possible extension to his contract at the end of the season. The Italian, who joined Spurs on an 18-month deal in November, appeared to question his own future at the club after the loss to Burnley in February but has since retracted his statement.
“At the moment there is only one truth: I am committed to this club for one more year,” Conte told reporters. “After four months, I think the club has understood the way I want to work and I understand the club.”
“In three months, at the end of the season, we will continue to improve this mutual understanding and then we will find the best solution for both of us. I enjoy working for this club. I like to fight for something important for this club,” he added.
Conte also stressed the importance of planning ahead, adding that the signing of Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur in January was a step in the right direction. “I think it’s very important to develop a good vision, because if you have a good vision in football and you have high hopes, you can be successful,” he said.
“In January we showed that we have only just started to improve the situation. We need a big, big improvement and we have started to do this with these players. But in the future you need to take other important steps and have ambition.”
