Despite securing a Champions League qualification for Tottenham, manager, Antonio Conte has refused to commit his future to the club.

Conte took over the club in November, sealing 10 out of 14 wins after their defeat to now-relegated Burnley to earn fourth place ahead of Arsenal, Manchester United and West Ham.

When asked about his future after the 5-0 trashing of Norwich on Sunday, Conte likedn their UCL qualification to winning a trophy but stated that he will hold a crucial meeting with the club's hierarchy a few days thereafter.

“I am under contract until next summer you know very well I signed for one year and seven months. I enjoyed a lot, my time in Tottenham, because for me it was a big challenge to come in during the season,” he said.

“For a coach like me, it is not simple. It is a big challenge in a club with a fantastic stadium and a training ground and I knew the situation I could find — to give me the opportunity to work in the way I want.

“On the other hand, you know very well that I am a person who has ambition. I like to fight for something important, I like to fight to lift a trophy. For me, this is a trophy and I am very happy. And then we will see.

“I always said to you at the end of the season, we speak with the club and find the best solution for me and for the club. Now I think for me, the club, the players it is good to have three, four, five days’ rest and then the mind will be very clear. You can consider the whole season.

“You have to be very calm before speaking because now [there are] a lot of emotions in my mind, my heart. For this reason it would be very good to rest and then have a good meeting with the club to find the best possible solution.”
