Antonio Conte ends his jobless stint at Tottenham Hotspur

Antonio Conte ends his jobless stint at Tottenham Hotspur nearly a year after leaving the club. He will return to Serie A as Napoli manager.

European soccer transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano said on Monday (Jan. 1), “Conte will become Napoli’s new manager. The two sides have agreed on all the details, including a fixed salary, bonuses, portrait rights, and coaching staff,” he said, followed by the signature ‘Here we go!’

“Conte will sign a contract valid until June 2027. The papers have already been approved. It’s a great appointment for Napoli,” Romano added.

According to Sky Sport Italia, Napoli even offered the highest salary in the club’s history to lure Conte. “Conte will become the new Napoli boss on a three-year contract. He will be paid 6 million euros a season. 토토사이트 This will make Conte the highest-paid coach in Napoli’s history, including bonuses.”

Conte has been called a “championship hitman. He started at Juventus in May 2011 and has been on a winning streak ever since. Conte dominated Serie A in his first season, won three consecutive league titles, and led the Italian national team to a runner-up finish at Euro 2020.

He also achieved success at Chelsea and Inter Milan.

Conte led Chelsea to the Premier League title in 2016-2017 and Inter Milan to the title in 2020-2021. He was criticized for ruining the future of the club, but his achievements – four Serie A titles, two Coppa Italia titles, one Premier League title, and one FA Cup – cannot be ignored.

At Tottenham, it was different. Conte took over in November 2021 and led Spurs to a fourth-place finish and their first UEFA Champions League (UCL) qualification in a long time. The Conte mythology seemed to be continuing.

But expectations soon turned to disappointment. 토토사이트 추천 Even with Son Heung-min and Harry Kane, Conte played too much defensive soccer, and the team slumped in form and results. “The club and the players don’t have the desire to win. That’s the 20-year history of Tottenham,” he said, before dropping a bombshell statement blaming Tottenham’s ‘irrelevant DNA’ and stepping down in March 2023. It was the first time he had left a team without a trophy since his arrival at Juventus in 2011.

Conte will now attempt to rebuild Napoli. Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis considered Conte, as well as AC Milan coach Stefan Pioli, Atalanta coach Gian Piero Gasperini, and Belgium national team coach Domenico Tedesco, before deciding that Conte was the right man for the job.

Napoli have been in a dark period since parting ways with Luciano Spalletti last summer.

In the 2022-2023 season, the club returned to the top of Serie A for the first time in 33 years with Kim Min-jae, but within a year, they had fallen to 10th place in the league. The club was forced to sack its manager twice and finish the season with a firebrand regime.

De Laurentiis, who is known for being a very vocal chairman, has reportedly agreed to give Conte full control of the club, even though the Italian coach has been stubbornly stubborn.

Conte has already made plans for the transfer market. “Napoli struggled in defense after losing Kim Min-Jae last season,” said Calcio Mercato. They are dreaming of making a big move to strengthen it,” and reported that Conte is targeting Alessandro Buonzorno, a 194cm left-footed center back. It was previously reported that Conte wanted Kim Min-jae back, 메이저사이트 but with that unlikely to happen, he has turned his attention to Buonzorno.
