Italian coach Antonio Conte is definitely a very successful football coach. However, if you look back at his career so far, you will find that most of his previous jobs have not ended in an ideal way.
In 2007, Conte became the coach of second division club Bari. The team, struggling for salvation, finished comfortably mid-table for the rest of the season and even celebrated a sensational promotion the following year.
Despite the success of promotion, the Italian coach decided to leave the club because, in his opinion, the club’s ambitions did not match his own. That same year he was still clamouring for a position on the Juventus bench. However, he was turned down even then.
Despite a successful start to the engagement, problems came very soon. The club stopped playing well, the fans began to protest loudly against Conte and there were even personal confrontations.
After one of the games Atalanta lost at home, there was a clash between him and the fans. Conte had to receive police protection. The following day, the Italian coach himself resigned.
Later, there were also reports that Antonio had a problem with the players and the club captain himself.
After a successful stint at the second league club Siena, which he secured promotion to the Italian elite, he sat on the Juventus bench.
During his tenure, he was first banned for 10 months for failing to report two cases of match-fixing he should have known about during his engagement with Siena. His sentence was later reduced to four months.
The actual stint at Juventus ended due to the Italian’s failure to reach an agreement with the management to sign new players. He later accepted an offer to coach the Italian national team.
After a very successful season, when Chelsea enjoyed a trophy win, misery came. It was no secret that even here the Italian coach had problems with the management regarding the signing and selling of players.
Inter Milan (2019-2021)
Even at Inter, Conte saw success in the form of winning the championship title. It was all the more surprising when Inter Milan announced his departure a few days later.
According to reports, it was another disagreement from Antonio Conte with the club’s transfer policy and the sale of players due to the poor financial situation of the Milanese outfit.
Tottenham Hotspur (2021-present)
If you look back at the very frequent disagreement in visions regarding transfers between him and the club’s management, it is quite surprising that he decided to take a job just on the Spurs bench.
Given Daniel Levy’s approach, problems were to be expected very early on. Here, however, there is no question of the management not providing him with the necessary resources and selected footballers. The London outfit has been in office over the summer and brought in a lot of new players.
Of course, the question is how many of these footballers were actually first choice and how many were only a fewth time solutions.
At the moment, the relationship between Conte and the whole club is at a standstill. It burns sharply into the way the management and players approach things. Whether it’s a dig between him and Richarlison or an assessment of the mentality of the whole club.
