Fans think Antonio Conte is trying to get himself sacked after Tottenham Hotspur’s Champions League exit

Fans think Antonio Conte is trying to get himself sacked after Tottenham Hotspur’s Champions League exit

Antonio Conte’s future is up in the air after Tottenham Hotspur were knocked out of the Champions League

Antonio Conte’s post-match comments have led fans to think he wants to get sacked by Tottenham Hotspur.

On Wednesday night, Spurs crashed out of the Champions League in the round of 16 after a dismal 0-0 draw against AC Milan.

The Italian outfit went through thanks to their 1-0 first-leg victory at the San Siro.

Elimination from the Champions League capped off yet another trophy-less season for Spurs as they were booed off by their disgruntled fans at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

After the match, Conte spoke about his future, he said: “My contract expires in June. We will see — they might sack me even before the end of the season, who knows, maybe they are disappointed.

“I can't say anything negative about the commitment of the players. They gave everything from the start to the end. We finished the game with 10 men. But if I have to see a positive situation, it is that we had a step forward.

“We played in the Europa Conference League last year and weren't able to get out of the group stages. Now we took a step forward but it is not enough and if we want to be competitive, we have to fight.”

Fans were quick to react to Conte’s words on social media.

One said: “Conte asking to be sacked with those post-match comments and that performance. He's done, clearly not up to it full of excuses, zero accountability.”

Another tweeted: “Conte wants the sack so he can get his payday but Spurs won’t give in.”

A third fan added: “Yep he wants the sack for sure, we had Jose and Conte and Levy has provided 1 CB in Romero.”

Someone else wrote: “Conte is asking to be sacked, clear as day. He wants to lose.”

Whilst a fifth commented: “Conte basically asking Spurs to sack him and pay him for the contract length.”

Spurs legend Glenn Hoddle stated the squad lacked quality, he said: “The squad isn't good enough. There was no energy. There was no creativity. Very disappointing.”

Up next for Conte’s men will be a Premier League clash against Nottingham Forest as they look to secure a place in the top four this season.
