The Latics have been punished for again failing to pay their players.
The Italian went on a 10-minute tirade against his players after they blew a 3-1 lead to draw against the Premier League's bottom club. Conte, who looks certain to leave his post at the end of his contract in the summer, if not before, is the latest Spurs manager who has been unable to bring silverware to the club, something that will hurt him given his fierce winning mentality. Sports performance coach Jeremy Lazarus, who has Premier League players, managers and top-level performers in other sports among his client list, believes Conte's desire to protect his identity as a winner could have caused the extraordinary outburst.
The 27-year-old was due to be out of contract at the end of this campaign.
