Tottenham Hotspur: Graham Roberts shocked by fresh Antonio Conte twist

Tottenham Hotspur: Graham Roberts shocked by fresh Antonio Conte twist -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Speaking to GiveMeSport, Tottenham Hotspur legend Graham Roberts has shared his utter disbelief over a major report this week on Antonio Conte’s future.

The Lowdown: Conte clause emerges…

Breaking some significant news, Italian outlet Calciomercato lifted the lid on Conte’s stance over a move to Paris Saint-Germain, whilst also revealing a worrying clause in his Spurs deal.

The 52-year-old can apparently activate an option to leave at the end of this season, even though his deal expires in 2023, with Conte also refusing to rule out a switch to the French capital from N17.

It is believed that PSG contacts have started for the Italian, with Conte ‘not totally opposed’ to the idea of signing a contract at the Parc des Princes.

The Latest: Roberts in disbelief…

Reacting to this news, in an interview with GiveMeSport, Spurs legend Roberts simply can’t believe the alleged existence of such a clause which would allow Conte to quit early. He stated:

“I think they have to buy players, they have to spend money.

“But I can’t believe that we have signed a manager, given him an 18-month contract but we’ve actually signed him for six months and he walks away.

“I don’t know where the club will be after that.”

The Verdict: Who do Spurs turn to?

If the report is indeed true and a clause of that nature does exist, it is believed that former Spurs manager and fan favourite Mauricio Pochettino is the top contender to take over from Conte.

The Telegraph claimed that chairman Daniel Levy personally has the Argentine on standby in case Tottenham’s fiery head coach does push the ejector button.

Taking this into account, some Lilywhites supporters could take comfort in that reliable update, but the thought of losing Conte may still be a worrying one for many.
