Tottenham Hotspur’s alleged pursuit of Antonio Conte is over.
This is the news tonight.
Conte reportedly had big doubts about becoming Tottenham’s new head coach.
The former Chelsea and Inter Milan manager is not convinced Spurs are ready to win major trophies immediately.
It is also reported that Tottenham did not make an offer to Conte.
Spurs are said to be concerned about some of the Italian’s demands, including his “perceived reluctance” to work with young players.
Well-known and respected journalist Fabrizio Romano also shed light on the case on his Twitter account.
This latest development means Tottenham will have to continue their search for a permanent manager.
Jose Mourinho was sacked as Spurs head coach just days before the Carabao Cup final against Manchester City.
Ryan Mason was named interim Spurs head coach until the end of the season.
It will be interesting to see who is now targeting Spurs president Daniel Levy.
Some Tottenham fans are disappointed that talks with Conte are over.
Here are some of the best comments on Twitter:
