Thursday- 10th June, 2021: Former Inter Milan and Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, has revealed why he rejected a move to coach Tottenham Hotspur.
The 51-year-old said that he wasn’t ‘convinced’ by the project sold to him by Tottenham’s board during talks to become the club’s next manager.
Conte was in advanced negotiations with Tottenham earlier this month with a view to replacing Jose Mourinho, who is now the coach of AS Roma.
Speaking on why he rejected a move to Tottenham, Conte was quoted by Metro UK as saying, “Money is not my obsession.
“I look at projects and I am ready to stay at home if they don’t convince me.
“I like difficult challenges, but if there is something with a club that does not convince me, I prefer to say: no, thank you.”
