The Lowdown: Scathing attack

After his side threw away a 3-1 lead to draw against a struggling Southampton side yesterday, Conte launched a scathing attack on his players, branding them 'selfish' and unwilling to 'help each other'.

The Italian claimed the disappointing result was the 'last straw', while also appearing to take a swipe at the Tottenham ownership, saying: "Tottenham's story is this - 20 years there is this owner and they never won something. Why?"

After the bombshell press conference, there has been speculation about the manager's future at the club, with talkSPORT pundit Gabby Agbonlahor insisting Daniel Levy needs to sack him as he 'doesn't want to be there anymore.'

The Latest: Pitt-Brooke reacts

Taking to Twitter to react to Conte's comments to the press, Pitt Brooke said: "Never seen anything like that Antonio Conte press conference just now. 10 minutes of trying to take everyone else down with him. It was such an amazing performance you almost had to admire it."

The Athletic journalist later added: "I don't see how Conte can plausibly make it to Goodison Park on 3 April after this. He has made his own job completely untenable."

The Verdict: Conte must go

The 53-year-old made a few very good points during his explosive rant, particularly in his criticism of the Spurs hierarchy being unable to compete for major trophies since taking over the club in 2001, which indicates a serious problem at board level.

This group of players has also let down far too many managers, with Conte, who has won nine trophies in his managerial career, becoming the latest coach unable to get a tune out of this Tottenham squad, with serial winner Jose Mourinho also struggling.

That said, it could be very weak of the Spurs board to allow the former Juventus boss to continue after so openly criticising his higher-ups, while he may have also damaged his relationship with some of the players after his heavy criticism.

Tottenham have been presented with an opportune time to part with Conte, given that we are now heading into an international break, and it could be wise to part ways with the manager, as keeping him will likely do them no favours in their push to finish in the top four.
