BREAKING: Antonio Conte appointed new Tottenham coach

Tottenham Hotspur have confirmed the appointment of Antonio Conte as their new head coach. 

"We are delighted to announce the appointment of Antonio Conte as our Head Coach on a contract until the summer of 2023, with an option to extend," a statement from Spurs read. 

"Antonio has won titles in Serie A, including a hat-trick of Scudettos with Juventus, the Premier League and also managed Italy, leading the Azzurri to the quarter-finals of Euro 2016."

Spurs sacked Nuno Espirito Santo after just four months in charge following a 3-0 defeat to Manchester United on Saturday. Santo left alongside his coaching staff Ian Cathro, Rui Barbosa, and Antonio Dias.

Conte reaction 

"I am extremely happy to return to coaching, and to do so at a Premier League club that has the ambition to be a protagonist again," he said. 

"Tottenham Hotspur has state-of-the-art facilities and one of the best stadiums in the world. I can't wait to start working to convey to the team and the fans the passion, mentality, and determination that have always distinguished me, as a player and as a coach."

"Last summer our union did not happen because the end of my relationship with Inter was still too recent and emotionally too involved with the end of the season, so I felt that it wasn’t yet the right time to return to coaching."

"But the contagious enthusiasm and determination of Daniel Levy in wanting to entrust me with this task had already hit the mark. Now that the opportunity has returned, I have chosen to take it with great conviction."

Conte's first game in charge will be against Vitesse on Thursday in the UEFA Europa Conference League.
