Tottenham coach vents and ponders farewell

Tottenham coach Antonio Conte spoke his heart out in an interview with ‘The Guardian’. The Salento-born coach vented, revealing that he is pondering a farewell to the Premier League: “Sometimes we give so much importance to work and put aside our families, the need to be with them. Then things like what happened to Gian Piero Ventrone, Sinisa Mihajlovic and Gianluca Vialli happen and make you think.”

“Losing three friends has made this season difficult for me also from a personal point of view. I am someone who puts work first, but that means neglecting family, forgetting to see friends. Work for me is a passion, and for passion you lose sight of so many things. What happened is making me think, making me think that maybe it’s time to spend more time with family, to see friends, to devote some time to himself. What happened is making me realize that work is not everything, as it has always been for me. When I work, I dedicate my whole self to my club-I am doing it with Tottenham, as I did before with Chelsea, Juve, and Inter Milan,” the Spurs manager continued.

“It is not easy to have my family in Italy, but when you have children going to school you have to respect them and not drag them to a new place every two years, make them change their environment and friendships,” concluded Antonio Conte
