Antonio Conte reveals the Tottenham manager vacancy was not “convincing” enough a project to accept.

Spurs and the Italian manager were in talks last week and appeared to be heading towards an agreement before a breakdown on Thursday.

While speaking to La Gazzetta dello Sport, Conte said:

“Generally, I like the challenges and I’ve accepted many of them during my career.

“Even the top clubs I coached were never the favourites when I arrived. However, if there’s something that doesn’t convince me I prefer not to accept regardless of the money.

“The market sets the price, but had I been obsessed by money, I would have stayed where I was in the past. I would have accepted compromises and obtained new contracts.

“I look for the projects instead and I am ready to stay at home if something is not convincing me. It has to do with vision, honesty and principles.”
