Conte could lose his job because of Eriksen, ex-Spurs boss tipped as possible replacement

Inter Milan may have a new manager next season with former Tottenham Hotspur coach Mauricio Pochettino expected to replace Antonio Conte according to multiple reports from Italy (via football.italia).

Despite finishing just one point behind Serie A champions Juventus, the Italian tactician is not pleased with the club ‘s management.

Conte thinks Inter hasn’t backed him enough, and Tottenham ‘s arrival of Denmark ‘s international Christian Eriksen in January is one of the reasons for his frustration.

Following six-and-a-half seasons at North London, the midfielder transferred to San Siro for £17 m during the winter transfer window, but Conte did not approve of the move because the 28-year-old would not suit his tactical set-up.

Notwithstanding having made 21 appearances in all competitions since joining Inter, Eriksen has played a full game only once since the restart, with Conte preferring to play others out of place in his position.

After the irreparable harm caused by his angry Saturday evening outburst, the Italian and the club could agree to terminate his contract by mutual consent.

Pochettino may be coming in as Argentina prepares to get to work ahead of the 2020-21 campaign starting.
