Last Sunday, Tottenham formalized the departure of Antonio Conte, a few weeks before the end of his contract. Invited to leave the ship after his recurring criticism of the London capital club, like a recent rant after the draw conceded in the Premier League against Southampton (3-3), the Italian coach has since reacted to his departure from Spurs, fourth in the table and eliminated by the Italians of AC Milan in the knockout stages of the Champions League.

“I feel responsible”

Announced on very bad terms with his players, the former coach of Squadra Azzurra was able to count on the support of one of the group’s executives. On the sidelines of the gathering of the South Korean selection against Uruguay (1-2), in a friendly match, Heung-min Son did not hide his disappointment, in remarks transcribed by the channel Sky Sports.

The 30-year-old striker – 10 goals in 37 games this season – makes his mea-culpa and deplores the departure of the Transalpin. “As a player, I’m really sorry. He’s a world-class coach and we’ve had a great trip together. I should have played better. I feel responsible for his departure, because I didn’t help the club that much. I am grateful for what he did. He’s such a good coach and he has so much experience. I will support him.”

Tottenham is now looking for a new coach, once the interim assumed by Cristian Stellini is over. As relayed by us, the partners of Hugo Lloris are studying several profiles. Among the names mentioned, those of Julian Nagelsmann (ex-Bayern Munich) and Christophe Galtier (Paris Saint-Germain).

At the foot of the podium, one length behind Manchester United, Tottenham will visit Everton next Monday at the conclusion of the 29th day of the Premier League.
