Tottenham: Spurs chiefs line up Diego Simeone to replace Antonio Conte

Tottenham: Spurs chiefs line up Diego Simeone to replace Antonio Conte - Premier League News

Tottenham Hotspur chiefs have already lined up Atletico Madrid boss Diego Simeone to replace incumbent manager Antonio Conte, according to reports.

The Lowdown: Conte contract running…

The Italian has spearheaded Spurs to a Champions League qualification place and reinstilled faith in the club since his arrival a year ago this week.

A proven trophy-winner, Conte looks to be slowly transforming the Lilywhites into a real Premier League force with a winning mentality, as evident by their recent heroic comebacks against Bournemouth and Marseille.

This is all while coping with mounting injury issues, and despite some criticism over Spurs’ brand of football, the general mood around the club is a positive one with the former Inter Milan boss in charge.

However, Conte’s deal is currently set to expire at the end of this season, with reports from Italy sharing the latest on his future at N17.

The Latest: Spurs line up Simeone…

Indeed, recent claims indicate that chairman Daniel Levy and Spurs chiefs have already lined up the 53-year-old’s replacement.

Calciomercato Web claim that Conte has his eyes on leaving when his contract expires, prompting Tottenham to look towards Atletico boss Simeone.

It’s claimed that the north Londoners have ‘already chosen’ the Spaniard as Conte’s heir, and his move to Spurs seems ‘very likely’ as things stand.

Calciomercato Web add that this scenario would allow Conte to rejoin Juventus upon leaving N17.

Spurs fans, do you remember who scored your first goal of the season against Man City?

The Verdict: Proven winner…

Much like Conte, Simeone is certainly a proven winner, having clinched eight trophies during his managerial career with Atletico.

A record like this has prompted members of the media to laud his ‘sensational‘ job as manager of the La Liga giants, although his infamously defensive brand of football could be a point of contention to some Tottenham supporters.
