The future of Antonio Conte remains uncertain but Tottenham will do everything in their power and try to keep him in North London; Daniel Levy will sit down with Conte at the end of the season and hope he can convince him to stay and continue on this exciting journey.
Despite the uncertainty surrounding the Premier League winner, North London is white and buzzing at the moment. Following a one-sided affair in the final North London Derby of the season where Tottenham beat Arsenal by three goals to nil, the race is even tighter between the two for fourth place, with only two games left in the Premier League run.
Rivals Gunners are just about in control of the situation, but any faulting over the next couple of fixtures and Spurs could steal that final Champions League spot away from them just like that.
The same goes for Antonio Conte: any slip up from his boys and they can forget about the tournament, and for Spurs that could mean more than just losing a spot in Europe’s biggest club competition, that could also mean losing Conte to a club fighting for top honours.
Only one point separates fourth-place Arsenal and fifth-place Spurs. Imagine the bragging rights in North London from the end of the season until the new one commences.
Has Tottenham got a plan B if Antonio Conte leaves?
Considering all the time spent trying to find a new manager before the season kicked off, Spurs must have learnt their lesson. So do they have a plan B in place if they fail to convince Conte to stay? Yes, they do.
The second course of action would be to tempt Brighton & Hove Albion boss Graham Potter to join them in North London. Since his Swansea days, he has been monitored by both NLD clubs.
Also, his spell at the Falmer Stadium has been a successful one. The Seagulls are en route to finishing in the top 10 of the EPL for the first time in their top-flight history. Added to this, this is their best point total in a single season with two games still to play.
Their fluent style of play and no fear attitude against the biggest clubs in England have earned Potter a good reputation amongst Europe’s top clubs. If plan B fails because Graham Potter wants to continue with the Brighton project, then Tottenham even has a plan C and D in place.
"Tottenham are looking at alternatives to Mauricio Pochettino should Antonio Conte leave, with Graham Potter and Roberto Mancini among the names set to be considered.There remains significant uncertainty over Conte’s future at Tottenham ahead of next season, and Pochettino has been largely viewed as the ideal candidate to replace the Italian in an appointment that would mark a dramatic return to Spurs for the Argentine.(Via: dailymail.co.uk)"
They are considering Roberto Mancini, the man who brought Manchester City’s first Premier League title in 2012. However, it will be hard to convince him to leave his post as Italy’s manager; they have recently missed out on another World Cup and because of this, he will want to make amends and redo Euro 2020.
Added to the list of possible Antonio Conte replacements, if he does decide to part ways with the club, is Mauricio Pochettino. As long as he is in the game and a manager, Spurs will always be linked with him.
