Jamie O’Hara has said on talkSPORT that he doesn’t think Antonio Conte will take over Tottenham Hotspur.
The former Tottenham midfielder, who now works as an expert for talkSPORT, is not seeing Conte leaving Inter Milan for Spurs this summer.
A report published this week in Corriere dello Sport claimed Tottenham president Daniel Levy was keen to appoint the former Chelsea boss as the new manager.
It has been reported that Spurs have already met the 51-year-old over the succession of Jose Mourinho and have even discussed how to improve the current squad, as covered by HITC Sport.
O’Hara said on talkSPORT: “I think if Tottenham had Antonio Conte they could keep Harry Kane – he’s a brilliant manager.
“He won the Premier League title with Chelsea and yes he got the sack but that’s what Chelsea do. It’s their culture. He went to Inter Milan and he also won the championship there. He’s a top manager.
The expert added: “I think we should go get Antonio Conte or Brendan Rodgers, but Spurs currently live in cuckoo country… we are contenders! We didn’t win anything!
“We are one of the ten best football clubs in the world, financially, but we haven’t won anything! How did we do this ?!
“So we have to be realistic now, and I think to be realistic is to get a Scott Parker or a Graham Potter and see where that takes us. Personally, I would love Antonio Conte, but I can’t see it happening.
Inter have just won Serie A and are planning to become a force in European football again.
Conte did an exceptional job at Inter, and it’s no surprise that Levy wants it.
The Italian is one of the best tacticians around. The 51-year-old has won Serie A three times with Juventus, the Premier League and the FA Cup once against Chelsea, and also led Inter to the Europa League final in 2019-20.
Tottenham are a massive club, and if Levy can convince Conte that he will have time and money to spend, then the Italian just might make the switch.
After all, Levy was able to bring in another successful manager in Jose Mourinho after Mauricio Pochettino left.
