LONDON: Tottenham have appointed former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss Antonio Conte as their new manager to replace Nuno Espirito Santo who lasted just four months.
Spurs quickly snatched the Italian operator for a contract until the summer of 2023, after sacking former Wolves boss Nuno who managed the team for 17 games.
Conte, who once coached Juventus and Italy, won the English Premier League with Chelsea in the 2016-17 season and the FA Cup the following season before being sacked.
The 52 -year -old has been unemployed since leaving Inter late last season – just weeks after winning his fourth Serie A title as manager.
“We are pleased to announce the appointment of Antonio Conte as head coach until the summer of 2023, with the option to extend it.
“Antonio won titles in Serie A, including a Scudettos hat -trick with Juventus, the English Premier League and also guided Italy until the quarter -finals of Euro 2016,” Spurs said.
Conte began negotiations with Spurs since June to replace Jose Mourinho but failed to reach an agreement.
“I am very happy to be back in training, and doing so at an English Premier League club that wants to be the protagonist again.
“Tottenham Hotspur has modern facilities and one of the best stadiums in the world. I can’t wait to start working,” said Conte.
