The Kiss Of Sherwood
Return To The Land Of The Nuno
Tim Sherwood may be an essentially unlikeable character, but I happen to agree with him on his appreciation of Conte’s position.
Tony is in one hundred percent the same professional boat as Ancelotti and Mourinho, and he will expect to see silverware soon, and even then, this may not be enough to sway him to extend.
One can only imagine the Italian’s reaction to the news that a scout had been sacked and an e-carting game was announced, within 24 hours of each other.
When asked if he thought Conte would stay at Tottenham, Sherwood said:
“No. No, I really don’t. If they win the Champions League, which is obviously a long shot. If they finish in the top 4, which is once again an incredible achievement last year and there’s a few dropped away.
“He’s done a brilliant job to take them where they are. Forget what’s done in the past, they’re 5th in the league now. They’re chasing 4th, good chance they can get there.
The FA Cup is wide open, there’s a lot of teams now that can possibly win that. And for a team like Tottenham who haven’t won that [in years], that’ll be a huge success.
“So, no, I don’t think he’ll be there!”
