The Italian manager is spending the final months of his current deal at Juventus.

Antonio Conte has dismissed reports linking him with a move back to Juventus, insisting he’s happy at Tottenham.

Following their poor start to the new season, Juve are reportedly considering possible replacements for Massimiliano Allegri.

Conte, who won three consecutive Serie A titles during his time at Juve, seems like an ideal successor to Allegri. However, the Tottenham boss says he’s comfortable with his current job in north London.

 “This is incredible,” Conte replied to a question about Juve’s search for a new boss. “I think this is disrespectful for the coach that works in Juventus and disrespectful to me because I am working for Tottenham.

“Many times I have spoken about this topic and I’ve always said I’m happy and enjoying my time with Tottenham. We have the whole season to find the best solution for the club and for me. For sure I’m enjoying my time at Tottenham.

“I have a great relationship with the owner [chairman Daniel Levy] and [Fabio] Paratici. I don’t see any problems at the moment in the future. We both signed the contract. I don’t want to listen to someone speaking about this [Juventus links].”

Tottenham sit third in the Premier League, one point below league leaders Arsenal. The arch-rivals meet in the north London derby this Saturday.
