EPL How Arsenal made Tottenham sack Conte as manager – Keown. Martin Keown, a former Arsenal player, said that the Gunners “played a part” in Antonio Conte’s dismissal as manager of Tottenham on Sunday.
The Italian manager, who had signed with the north London club in November 2021, was shown the exit door on Sunday after giving an angry interview following Tottenham’s disappointing performance against Southampton just before the break.
Prior to his firing, Tottenham lost to bottom-place Southampton in the Premier League and squandered a two-goal lead against Sheffield United in the FA Cup. They also lost to AC Milan in the round of 16 of the Champions League.
The legendary Arsenal player also laments their competitors’ success. Spurs’ decision to fire the former Inter Milan, Juventus, Italy, and Chelsea manager was influenced by Arsenal’s performance this season.
With 10 games remaining in the Premier League season, the Gunners are 20 points ahead of fourth-place Tottenham in the standings.
Without a doubt, Keown said, “I think they should have retained him till the end of the season.”
“I believe Arsenal was involved.
Spurs are under a ton of strain since Arsenal is 20 points ahead of them whereas they were both battling for a top-four spot at the same time last year.
