Tottenham confirmed on Sunday that manager Antonio Conte had left the club “by mutual consent” with the squad failing to finish in the top four of the Premier League.
During a 3-3 draw against Southampton, the Italian, who took command in November 2021, went off on the team just before the international break.
Until the rest of the season, his assistant Cristian Stellini will take his place.
Even though Newcastle, who are in fifth position and have two games in hand on Tottenham in the race for Champions League qualification, are only two points behind Spurs as Conte departs, the London side is fourth in the Premier League table.
Tottenham chairman Daniel Levy stated in a statement, “We have a fight on our hands for a Champions League position. We have 10 Premier League games left.”
“We must all work together. To secure the best result for our team and fantastic, devoted fans, everyone must stand up.”
Earlier this season, Stellini filled in for Conte on the sidelines while the 53-year-old was recovering from gallbladder surgery.
Ryan Mason, a former midfielder for Tottenham, who served briefly as interim manager in 2021, will take over as assistant coach.
