Antonio Conte Backed Into Odds-on For Tottenham Job

Antonio Conte is now a strong favourite to take the reins at Tottenham Hotspur after a sustained gamble on the Italian saw him go odds-on for the role on Wednesday.

The former Chelsea boss, who recently left Inter Milan despite leading them to their first Serie A title since 2010, is said to be in talks with the Spurs hierarchy as they continue their search for a permanent replacement for Jose Mourinho.

The gamble on Conte saw him plummet into 2/7 from 11/2 within the space of a few hours on Wednesday,

…making him the shortest-priced favourite since the market opened in April.

A return for Mauricio Pochettino was believed to be on the table, but the PSG boss has been eased to 4/1 from 6/4 while Roberto Martinez remains the 10/1 third favourite.
