Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte labeled the reports linking him to the Paris Saint-Germain job as fake news. There were reports that stated that Conte was interested in replacing Mauricio Pochettino at the French Club. He has another year left on his contract at Spurs and has refused to commit his future to the club. Spurs are currently battling for fourth place in the Premier League.
“Obviously I think it’s good other clubs appreciate my work. This is one thing. But the truth is I don’t like when people try to invest news – only to speak, only to create problems. This is not right, not fair for me, for the clubs involved, and for my players,” Antonio Conte said about the reports linking him to the Paris Saint-Germain job. “Also because we’re really focused on these five games to get a fantastic result for us. I repeat, this type of situation makes me smile. But I think also the people that want to tell something about this have to show respect for all the people involved in this situation, and not invent fake news and tell a lot of lies. In this situation, who works in football – players or managers – know very well at this point of the season, a lot of fake news starts to go out.”
“At this moment our fans, me, the players, the club, the fans we need to be focused, we need to be concentrated on an important target for us,” he added. “We have a big opportunity to try to get a place in the Champions League. It’s a big opportunity for us because no one can imagine staying and fighting for this target in this league now at this moment.”
