Why I Rejected Tottenham Job – Antonio Conte

Rejected Tottenham Job Conte

Antonio Conte has revealed his reasons for turning down Tottenham’s approach to become their new manager.

Negotiations collapsed at the beginning of the month with Spurs now turning their attention to former Roma boss Paulo Fonseca.

Conte has now explained his decision in turning down Tottenham’s approach, insisting it wasn’t down to money.

“The market sets the price, but had I been obsessed by money, I would have stayed where I was in the past. I would have accepted compromises and obtained new contracts,” Conte told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I look for the projects instead and I am ready to stay at home if something is not convincing me. It has to do with vision, honesty and principles.

“Generally, I like challenges and I’ve accepted many of them during my career.

“Even the top clubs I coached were never the favourites when I arrived.
