Editor-in-chief at Forza Italian Football Conor Clancy has described Antonio Conte as the most demanding man that has ever lived and joked that he would kill Daniel Levy if they worked together.
But the pair could soon be about to link up for the very first time, with Conte now in advanced talks about becoming the new Tottenham manager.
Should Tottenham hire Pochettino?
Remarkably, it’s just four weeks since Conte won his fourth Serie A title and guided Inter Milan to their first since 2010.
However, following problems with the owners, the Italian left his role at the San Siro by mutual consent, but is on the verge of making a sudden return to management, which would see him back in England just three years after he was sacked by Chelsea.
Conte’s first spell in England saw him win the Premier League and FA Cup, but his failure to qualify for the Champions League proved costly when he was sacked and replaced by Maurizio Sarri.
But a return to the capital is now on the cards, although Clancy fears for Levy dealing with someone as intense as the Italian.
He told The Transfer Tavern:
“Conte is one of the, if not the most demanding man that has ever lived, and I don’t see how it would possibly work for him with a club like Spurs with someone like Daniel Levy above him. That relationship, I don’t think Daniel Levy would come out alive because Conte would probably kill him.
“He demands backing, he demands signings, even with Inter he was given signings like Stefano Sensi and Nicolo Barella in his first year, and they were Inter’s two best players, and even after three months he was complaining.”
