Tottenham Hotspur’s search for its third manager since 2019 promises to be a much shorter process than this past summer. Multiple outlets are now reporting that Antonio Conte has been offered the position, and despite walking away from the job four months ago is strongly considering accepting it this time around.

When Conte was last interested in the Tottenham job, succeeding Jose Mourinho, the deal fell apart, reportedly due to concerns that Conte had over the scope of the rebuilding project and the amount of resources he’d have at his disposal. Conte has a truly impressive record of success at the clubs where he has managed, but he has a fiery temper and as the saying goes does not suffer fools lightly and is not afraid to leave jobs when he does not feel appreciated.

According to Gianluca DiMarzio, Conte is expected to sign a short term contract through the 2023 season, and was likely given assurances that he will have backing, both public and financial.

There will be a LOT more to come. Stay tuned.
