Spurs have parted ways with the Italian head coach after a turbulent couple of weeks.

Tottenham Hotspur has announced that Antonio Conte has left the club by mutual consent, following his recent criticisms of the club and players. The 53-year-old Italian coach has been relieved of his position after a disappointing spell in charge.

"We achieved Champions League qualification in Antonio's first season. We thank Antonio for his contribution and wish him well for the future," the club statement read.

Earlier this month, Tottenham suffered a double exit from the Champions League and FA Cup in the space of a week. Last weekend, they dropped crucial points in the race for fourth place when they conceded two goals in the final 13 minutes of their match against Southampton, despite initially leading 3-1.

The result was the final straw for Antonio Conte, who vented his frustrations towards the players and the club's hierarchy in his post-match press conference. The passionate coach even suggested that his sacking would not change anything.

During Sunday's announcement, club's chairman, Daniel Levy, emphasized the importance of pulling together and securing the highest possible finish in the remaining Premier League games. In the statement, he also expressed gratitude for Conte's contributions, including securing Champions League qualification in his first season. 

"We have 10 Premier League games remaining and we have a fight on our hands for a Champions League place," he said. "We all need to pull together. Everyone has to step up to ensure the highest possible finish for our club and amazing, loyal supporters."

Conte's assistant Cristian Stellini is set to take charge of the team for the remainder of the season, with Ryan Mason working alongside him as assistant head coach
