Conte has been in charge for just 16 months and, while they sit fourth in the Premier League, several media outlets are reporting his post-match outburst after Saturday's 3-3 draw at Southampton was the final straw for the Spurs hierarchy. The Italian has recently seen his side exit the FA Cup and Champions League in quick succession and watched Tottenham concede twice in the final 13 minutes on the south coast. The Italian's contract was set to expire in the summer and he has remained coy over the prospect of extending his stay in north London, but Tottenham seem set to cut their losses with the former Chelsea boss.
Five days earlier, Sheffield United’s Division One clash with West Brom had been abandoned by referee Eddie Wolstenholme.
The former England boss is reportedly set to be appointed Patrick Vieira’s successor.
