This week there were reports that Antonio Conte will replace Mauricio Pochettino at PSG next season.
Conte replaced Nuno Espírito Santo in November and has already been linked with a move from the London Club.
Tottenham is fifty on the Premier League table and just two points behind fourth-place Arsenal in the quest for a top-four finish.
The Italian coach has rubbish, does rumors, and calls them fake news.
What was said?
Speaking at a press conference ahead of Tottenham’s match with Leicester City on Friday, He said:
‘Obviously, I think that it’s good that other clubs appreciate my work. This is one thing.’
‘But the truth is that I don’t like when people try to invent news, only to speak, only to create problems. This is not right, not fair for me, for the clubs involved, and for my players.
‘Also because we’re really focussed on these five games to get a fantastic result for us. I repeat, this type of situation makes me smile.
But I think that also the people that want to tell something about this have to show respect for all the people involved in this situation, and not invent fake news and tell a lot of lies.’
When quizzed whether he had spoken to his Tottenham players about the rumors, The Italian said:‘In this situation, who works in football – players or managers – know very well that at this point of the season, a lot of fake news starts to go out.
“We’re working very hard and my players know very well we’re very focused. We’re speaking a lot about this opportunity.
“We have to live this situation with passion, enthusiasm, and joy. I repeat, we deserve to stay there and fight for a place in the Champions League. A place in the Champions League is not easy for no one.
‘To stay there, we need to enjoy this situation. For this reason, I repeat our fans have to stay with us at every moment. Positive and negative moments.
‘We deserve to fight until the end and have a big push from our fan.’
Tottenham need a good result from the Leicester City match if they want to keep their Champions League hopes alive.
Antonio Conte also provided an update on Skipp’s injury, the surgery, and the depth of the Spurs squad.
The England international got injured in Tottenham’s 2-0 defeat in January before suffering an infection that has prolonged his return date.
After successfully undergoing surgery last Tuesday after traveling to the United States, Oliver Skipp will now begin a period of rehabilitation before returning for pre-season.
This is what Conte said: “I have spoken with the doctors and they said to me that the surgery was OK, it went well. For sure, Oliver will be ready for pre-season, for next season.
“It’s a pity because don’t forget that we lost two players in Skipp and Tanganga from January. We don’t have two reliable players like them and for sure it’s not good for me to manage the situation.
“This squad is not so deep so to lose two players that for us we’re talking about important players; it’s not good news.”
