‘I think he’ll LEAVE the club’: Jamie Redknapp fears Antonio Conte could WALK OUT on Tottenham unless chairman Daniel Levy ‘gives him what he needs’ in the transfer window to guide Spurs into the top four
- Tottenham have not signed anyone in the January transfer window so far
- Jamie Redknapp believes Antonio Conte will have been promised funds
- He feels Daniel Levy must deliver on his promises or Conte could leave the club
This has put his team in contention to finish inside the top four for the first time since the 2018/19 season.
Jamie Redknapp is concerned that Antonio Conte could leave Tottenham if he isn’t backed
Conte has started well at Spurs but has not been able to add to his squad so far this month
However, Tottenham are yet to sign anyone in this month’s transfer window, and time is running out for Conte to strengthen his squad.
After watching Spurs slip to a 2-0 defeat at Chelsea on Sunday, their first league loss under Conte, Redknapp highlighted the need for chairman Daniel Levy to support Conte by bringing players into the club.
‘He needs players. There must have been an agreement between him and Daniel Levy they’d bring in the players he needs,’ Redknapp told Sky Sports.
‘He’s done a great job to get in this position. There’s a massive gulf between Manchester City, Liverpool and Chelsea and the rest you can see it.
Tottenham are so close to get into the top four, no other manager could have done in this position. But he needs backing he needs to get players in.
The pressure is building on Daniel Levy to support Conte by signing some players quickly
‘Two, three, four players in and he’s got nine days in the window to do it. Daniel Levy is a difficult man for managers to deal with.
‘If you don’t back him (Conte) you look at his history with Inter Milan, I think he’ll leave the club because you can’t promise and then not deliver.
‘Tottenham fans must be so frustrated as everything’s great – the stadium, the training ground but the team needs a bit of help right now so give him what he needs.’
Tottenham have been heavily linked with Wolves winger Adama Traore recently, and their fans may hope that getting this deal over the line could be the start of a busy week for the club in the transfer market.
Despite their loss at Stamford Bridge on Sunday, Conte’s men remain just two points outside the top four, with two games in hand on Manchester United, who currently occupy the final Champions League qualifying spot.
