EPL: Put him out of his misery – Tottenham told to sack Antonio Conte immediately
Liverpool legend, Jamie Carragher, has urged Tottenham Hotspur to sack their manager, Antonio Conte ‘tonight’ following the astonishing tirade he launched at his players after his side’s Premier League 3-3 draw against Southampton.
Tottenham looked on course to take a major step towards UEFA Champions League qualification when forward Ivan Perisic put the visitors 3-1 ahead with 15 minutes remaining at St Mary’s.
But Southampton eventually equalized through Theo Walcott and James Ward-Prowse.
After the match, Conte was left fuming with Tottenham players and ripped at them in his post-match press conference, accusing them of a lack of heart.
However, Carragher believes Spurs should put Conte out of his misery and sack him.
“Conte wants to be sacked in this international break,” Carragher wrote on Twitter.
“Spurs should just put him out of his misery and do it tonight.
“His point about Spurs not winning for a long time is right, but you don’t speak about your own club like that.
“Especially when you’re getting paid fortunes by them! The improvement in Arsenal this season after finishing above them last season kills a lot of his arguments.”
