The Lowdown: Uncertain future
The 53-year-old hasn’t yet put pen to paper on fresh terms, though recent reports suggest that he will be financially backed in the January transfer window, offering Daniel Levy some hope that an internal agreement can be reached.
The Latest: Tottenham set for ‘huge coup’
Speaking to GiveMeSport, O’Rourke insisted that Spurs would receive a massive boost should Conte commit his long-term future to the club.
“To get the manager tied down and finally end all that speculation over a possible move back to Juventus would be a huge coup for Tottenham and everybody involved with the club.”
The Verdict: Fully deserved
Conte being offered a new contract by the board would be nothing less than he deserves given the instant impact he’s made since his arrival towards the end of last year.
The Lecce-born coach has won 30, drawn nine and lost just 14 of his 53 matches in the dugout, and currently averages 1.87 points per match (Transfermarkt).
The Lilywhites will secure a place in the last 16 of the Champions League if they can beat Marseille in their final group game next week, and that would be another huge reason to keep the boss around should they be successful in doing so.
