Tottenham Hotspur’s 5-0 victory over Norwich on Sunday meant that Champions League Qualification was secured as they finished in 4th place above arch-rivals Arsenal for the sixth consecutive season. Since he replaced Nuno Esposito in November of last year, he performed miracles considering they were lying in a disappointing 9th place back then.Embed from Getty Images
After finishing in the Top 4 the Italian has secured £150M for this Summer’s transfer window which means that he can compete at the top end of the table without being financially disadvantaged. Be under no illusion they need to spend well this Summer to even think about trophies but when you have Antonio Conte as manager anything is possible. I would say he is in the top 3 best managers and should be in the same conversation as Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola.
‘The delivery of a world class home was always a key building block in driving diversified revenues to enable us to invest in the team and support our ambitions to be consistently competing at the highest levels of European football. ‘Additional capital from ENIC will now enable further investment in the club at an important time’Daniel Levy, Tottenham Hotspur chairman
My prediction for next season
Combining this news with their world-class stadium it is a great time to be a Tottenham Hotspur fan. Throughout the whole season, fans have been worried about Antonio Conte leaving because they did not think Daniel Levy would secure any investment which is what the Italian has been seeking to make this move work.
There are no excuses now for The Lilywhites to not perform. I expect them to finish 3rd in the league and to win a trophy next season at the bare minimum. As everyone is aware the 52-year-old is a serial winner, especially in the short term so this should not be out of the question at all.
My predicted lineup
Substitute bench: Forster, Dier, Bentacur, Kulusevski, Bergwijn, Skipp & Scarlett
