Antonio Conte could leave Tottenham at the end of the season if they lose to Arsenal on Thursday and miss out on the top-4.

So says former Spurs forward Teddy Sheringham, who fears the Italian could leave if the club fail to qualify for the Champions League.

Arsenal have a four-point lead over Spurs ahead of Thursday’s north London derby and the Gunners can secure a place in the top four with a win in their arch-rivals’ home game.

Conte signed an 18-month contract when he arrived at the club in November but his plans to strengthen the squad could depend on Spurs managing to finish in the top four.

And while Sheringham is desperate for the Italian to stay, he fears Conte could leave if Spurs lose on Thursday.

“If Conte wants to stay longer than his two years, he needs more of his own players to play in the Champions League,” Sheringham told 8Xbet.

“If things go according to plan he should get more transfer money and build.

“Would I understand if he left without Champions League football? He is a man who wants to do business immediately. He wants to play at the highest level in big games.

“But he took the job because he knew where Tottenham was. He knew getting in the top four wouldn’t be easy and he has to work harder for them to be consistent and make it.

“If he doesn’t do it this season, I’d like to think he would stay and do it next season. I really hope he stays because he suits Tottenham.

“He brought some will, discipline, work pace and attitude that have been lacking in recent years. He’s on the right track, but there are still big question marks.

“We know how volatile football is. Money talks and if others want these top managers then they go out and put pressure on other clubs and make it known.

“That’s why it’s in Tottenham’s and Conte’s best interests to get into the Champions League.”
