Antonio Conte was not impressed with the rumours that a possible return to Juventus was on the horizon, underlining his happiness at Tottenham.
Pressure is starting to mount on Massimiliano Allegri in Turin after the Bianconeri’s incredibly poor start to the season, with many fans hoping to see the coach replaced in the coming months.
Juventus have only won two of their opening seven Serie A matches and lost both of their first two Champions League group games, putting the team in a tough spot ahead of the World Cup break.
Speaking in a press conference today, Conte reacted to the rumours that he might return to Juventus within the next year, underlining his frustration with the noise.
“This is incredible. In this period I think this is disrespectful for the coach that works at Juventus and for me working at Tottenham. We have just started the season. Many times I’ve spoken about this topic and I’ve always said I’m happy and enjoying my time with Tottenham.
“We have the whole season to find the best solution for the club and for me and for sure I’m enjoying my time at Tottenham. I have a great relationship with the owner and Paratici.
“I don’t see any problems at the moment in the future. We both signed the contract. I don’t want to listen to someone speaking about this.”
Conte’s departure from Juventus in 2014 was fairly acrimonious and he’s known to have a poor relationship with president Massimiliano Allegri, although he still holds fond feelings for the Bianconeri. The Italian spent 13 year of his playing career with the Old Lady and won three Scudetti during his time in charge.
