Antonio Conte could quit as Spurs manager if they lose to Arsenal in the North London Derby

Antonio Conte Tottenham
Former Watford striker Troy Deeney believes that Antonio Conte could resign if Tottenham Hotspur lose to the Gunners on Sunday.

Antonio Conte joined Tottenham in November 2021, but has failed to deliver on the club’s expectations since his appointment.

Tottenham Hotspur employed Conte because of his experience in winning league titles, but having failed to do that in his first season, his second season in charge has not been any different. Spurs currently sit in fifth position in the league and are 11 points behind league leaders and neighbours Arsenal, having played a game more.

Speaking to The Sun, Troy Deeney believes that the Italian could end up quitting his job if they lose at home to Arsenal.

“There is a feeling as a player that if you don’t win, the fans could turn on you for the next six months,” said the Birmingham striker.

“And, as a manager, if you get turned over 4-0 or 5-0 there will be calls for you to be gone by the end of that day.

“That’s the reason why I feel there is so much pressure on Tottenham. They have fallen so far behind Arsenal.

“They have flattered to deceive and not only do they need a performance, this is a must-win.

“There is so much frustration and disappointment that if they lose badly, where next? I don’t see them recovering for the rest of the season.
