‘No way’, I’m done’ – Tottenham fans can’t believe who could replace Conte
Tottenham supporters can’t believe that Nottingham Forest boss Steve Cooper has been linked to replacing Antonio Conte.
The Lowdown: Conte exit looming?
The Premier League top-four chasers most recently succumbed to a nightmare 1-0 aggregate loss in their Champions League last 16 tie, casting serious doubt on Conte’s future.
His current Spurs deal is set to expire at the end of this season, and while the club have an option to extend by 12 months, noises suggest there is currently little appetite.
As such, new names are being linked with the potentially vacant managerial post, with one of them now attracting criticism from supporters.
The Latest: Spurs fans can’t believe Cooper news…
According to The Athletic (via Last Word on Spurs), Forest boss Cooper has many admirers within Spurs amid Conte’s possible exit.
Reacting to this claim, it’s safe to say many Lilywhites supporters weren’t impressed – find out what they said below:
“Are you serious?” – @firemissionover
“I swear if this happens I’ll never support this club again” – @premierleabxhx
“I’m done if we appoint him” – @spurs_fan15
“No way. Just no way” – @pauljallen
“No thanks. Just another overhyped Graham Potter.” – @MaraDinho_10
“Nooooooooooooo” – @jilllewis33
The Verdict: Don’t discount?
The 43-year-old guided Forest to promotion last season, and so far, they appear as one of the favourites to avoid a drop back to the Championship.
Currently four points clear of their relegation rivals, they’re in a better position to survive than their rivals, but it understandable that Spurs supporters wish for a more elite name to succeed Conte.
