Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte has described his name being linked with a move to French Ligue 1 champions Paris St-Germain to be their head coach as “fake news”. A French media outlet recently reported that Conte was in the frame to replace Mauricio Pochettino in Paris.
Antonio Conte Says News Linking him to PSG is Fake
The Italian said: “I think it is good that other clubs appreciate my work.” “But this is one thing. The truth is that I don’t like when people try to invent news, only to speak or create problems.” “We have five games to play and then at the end of the season, in a private way, I will speak with my club and I will see the best solution,” said Conte.
Antonio Conte also said: “This is not right or fair for me – or the clubs involved. “This situation makes me smile, but I think the people that want to tell something like this have to show respect for all the people that are involved in this situation and not invent fake news and tell a lot of lies.”
The Italian who was Inter Milan and Chelsea before taking the Spurs job in November seems not to have any plans of leaving the English Premier League side anytime soon. Tottenham is fifth in the Premier League and two points behind Arsenal as they chase a top-four place which would secure Champions League qualification.
They will play Leicester City on Sunday (1400 GMT), while the Gunners play West Ham (1630 GMT) later on the same day.
