We always said we would talk to the club and find the best solution at the end of the season, says Antonio Conte

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte has refuted claims of a long-term future at the club and instead admitted he will speak to the club in order to find the best solution for everyone. The Italian also added that he considers the top four a trophy because of how hard they had to fight.

After sacking Nuno Espirito Santo less than four months into a two-year contract, many Tottenham fans wondered who the club would appoint to replace him. But with Antonio Conte entering the fray to replace the former Wolverhampton Wanderers boss, there was plenty of excitement around the club. It was all the more so as Spurs sat in ninth place when Conte took over in November and the Italian has since turned the tide.

So much so that the North Londoners have won ten of the fourteen games they have played under the Italian and finished fourth above their rivals. Arsenal. However, although many fans and critics are excited for the future, there is still concern that Conte could leave. But despite this, the Italian declined to comment on his long-term future and instead admitted he would speak to the board in order to ‘find the best solution for me and the club’.

“I’m under contract until next summer. I signed for a year and seven months. I really enjoyed my time at Tottenham because, I repeat, it was a big challenge for me. during the season, for a coach like me, it’s not easy, it was a big challenge in a modern club with a fantastic stadium and training ground.

“For me it’s a trophy and I’m very happy. Then we’ll see. I’ve always said that at the end of the season we’ll talk to the club and find the best solution for me and the club. It was very difficult to talk about it at the time, I’m very tired, I was really focused on achieving this great achievement.

“It’s very, very difficult to achieve a place in the Champions League. I have to consider this a very big achievement for me and for my players. And also for the club to consider this a big achievement… after three years Tottenham are capable of playing in the Champions League again,” he added.

The Italian also revealed that finishing fourth is like a trophy for him due to the time constraints and how hard Tottenham had to work to finish over Arsenal. Not only that, he added that it’s “a big achievement for me” and the emotions are running high for everyone.

“Despite the fact that I did not lift a trophy, for me it is a great achievement, for me in a short time and in a short period in a difficult situation I worked a lot with my players to bring this club to play in the Champions League.

“I want to consider this qualification as a trophy. In my mind, my heart and my head, I know what we have done in these seven months. Me, my staff and the players. I want to celebrate and we will have time to talk with the club about everything.

“Now there are a lot of emotions in my mind and my heart, for me, for the club and for everyone. For this reason, it will be very good to rest for four or five days and then to have a good meeting with the club to find the best possible solution,” he revealed.
