The Italian tactician's job in North London is reportedly under danger after slamming his own player and the owners following the 3-3 draw at Southampton.

Antonio Conte continues to dominate the headlines following his extraordinary post-game rant in the wake of Tottenham's draw at Southampton.

The Italian boss saw his side throw away a 3-1 lead against the relegation-battling side to draw 3-3 after conceding an equalizer deep into stoppage time. As a result, the highly-rated tactician was understandably frustrated but many feel the 53-year-old went too far with his outburst after full-time.

Antonio slammed his own player, labeling them as selfish and incapable of handling any kind of pressure before aiming a few digs at the hierarchy, reminding the fans that Spurs are yet to win a major trophy under the current ownership.

"We are 11 players that go into the pitch. I see selfish players, I see players that don't want to help each other and don't put their heart (in)," the Italian said.

"Why? Because they are used to it here, they are used to it. They don't play for something important. They don't want to play under pressure, they don't want to play under stress," Conte added.

"It is easy in this way. Tottenham's story is this. Twenty years there is the owner and they never won something but why? The fault is only for the club, or for every manager that stays here. I have seen the managers that Tottenham had on the bench."

Antonio's future at the club was already under tremendous scrutiny. With his current contract set to expire this summer, Conte has been tipped to leave North London at the end of the season.

However, according to the Telegraph, the former Juventus manager's departure from Spurs could happen a lot earlier than expected. The British news outlet claim that the club are pondering whether to sack him during the current international break.

Club chairman Daniel Levy has had a meeting with Conte following his shocking outburst, with the head coach stressing that his criticism was not aimed at the club and the owners. Nonetheless, Levy is set to hold discussions with his closest confidants and could let the Italian boss go depending on the outcome of that deliberation.

The chairman must weigh his options. Should Conte be sacked, Ryan Mason would likely return as an interim boss until the end of the season. However, the crucial question is whether that will boost or ruin their hopes of qualifying for the UEFA Champions League.

Harry Kane and Co. currently sit in fourth but Newcastle and Liverpool, their closest rivals in the standings, have two games in hand on Spurs while seventh-placed Brighton have three. After ripping into his players, will Conte be able to motivate his troops for the remaining fixture or will the inexperience of Mason be a larger hindrance?

With the international break having arrived, Tottenham will not be in action until next month, which gives everyone at the club a breather. Next up for the North London outfit is a trip to Everton on April 3 followed by a difficult showdown with Brighton, another team hopeful of securing a European ticket this season.
