Tottenham Hotspur have one of the best coaches in world football in Antonio Conte.
Spurs were struggling last season under Nuno Espirito Santo, prompting to his early sacking.
Conte then came on board at Tottenham and steered the team to a Champions League place.
And though Spurs are far from the finished product, they certainly seem to be heading in the right direction.
Tottenham sit top of Champions League Group D. They will advance to the knockouts with a win over Sporting CP on Wednesday night.
Meanwhile, one of Conte’s former clubs isn’t having such a good time.
Not only are Juventus a lowly eighth in Serie A, but they also dropped out of the Champions League at the group stage.
The Bianconeri’s 4-3 loss at Benfica on Tuesday night meant a Europa League spot is the best they can do now.
What’s this got to do with Tottenham? Well, Conte has been linked with Juve over the past few months.
He won three Serie A titles in a row with the Turin club, before leaving to take the reins of the Italy national team.
So if Juve decide to sack Max Allegri, then the concern is that they’ll target Conte for a return to Turin.
However, Fabrizio Romano has told CaughtOffside that neither Juve nor Allegri are thinking of a change at present.
“No changes on Massimiliano Allegri’s situation,” he wrote.
“Juventus won’t sack him and he won’t leave, despite another disappointing defeat to Benfica.
“Andrea Agnelli confirmed his intention to continue with Allegri, whose current deal expires in June 2025.”
This is good news for Tottenham, as one of the main clubs who could potentially prise Conte off them isn’t planning to do so just yet.
Conte is building something good at N17 and he’ll need time to do so.
Hopefully Allegri can turn Juve round and keep himself in a job which the Spurs boss is being linked with far too often.
