Tottenham Hotspurs have officially announced Antonio Conte as their new manager.

The Premier League side parted ways with Nuno Espirito Santo following his poor run of form, with the recent occurring on home soil against Manchester United; Spurs conceded three goals to struggling Red Devils, their fifth defeat in the Premier League.

“We are delighted to announce the appointment of Antonio Conte as our Head Coach on a contract until the summer of 2023, with an option to extend,” the club confirmed on their official website.

The Italian who having finished second in Serie A in 2019/20, reached the final of the Europa League before guiding Inter to their first title in 11 years in 2020/21, ending Juventus’ run of nine successive Scudettos.

He was delighted to return to coaching despite his decision to sit back following his exit at Inter Milan.

 “I am extremely happy to return to coaching, and to do so at a Premier League club that has the ambition to be a protagonist again,” Antonio said.

“Tottenham Hotspur has state-of-the-art facilities and one of the best stadiums in the world.

“I can't wait to start working to convey to the team and the fans the passion, mentality and determination that have always distinguished me, as a player and as a coach.

“Last summer our union did not happen because the end of my relationship with Inter was still too recent and emotionally too involved with the end of the season, so I felt that it wasn’t yet the right time to return to coaching.

“But the contagious enthusiasm and determination of Daniel Levy in wanting to entrust me with this task had already hit the mark. Now that the opportunity has returned, I have chosen to take it with great conviction.”

The new manager will play his first game in the Europa Conference League on Thursday against Vitesse before visiting Goodison Park to engage Everton in the Premier League fixture.
