As Zlatan Ibrahimovic defended Antonio Conte, an unexpected source has come to his aid. Conte is currently facing criticism, and it’s thought that his position at Tottenham is in jeopardy because of the inflammatory remarks he made over the weekend.

As Tottenham lost a 3-1 lead against Southampton and had to settle for a three-all draw, the Italian ripped into the players and club President Daniel Levy. It is anticipated that Spurs will eventually discipline the former Chelsea manager.
While many could concur that Conte’s remarks were warranted, others might contend that openly attacking his team in this manner was inappropriate. In the past, Sports Brief has discussed how Conte’s suffering in North London may be his own fault.
Ibrahimovic has sided with the 53-year-old as the debate continues. The brash Swedish striker argued that individuals should express their opinions without worrying about the consequences.
Everyone has their own method of working. I firmly believe in being true to oneself, but sometimes doing so comes with a price because it goes against popular opinion, as reported by Sky Sports.
It is now extremely improbable that Conte would extend his contract, which is up at the end of the current campaign. According to Sports Brief, after Julian Nagelsmann left Bayern Munich, Tottenham Hotspur may have been given a great opportunity to get a good manager. Although the Bayern coach led the squad to the quarterfinals of the Champions League, the team is now in uncharted terrain in the league as they compete with Borussia Dortmund and surprise packages Union Berlin for the Bundesliga crown.
Given his track record of getting the greatest performance out of relatively young players, the young coach may be just what Spurs needs. Notably, in 2019 Nagelsmann became the youngest manager to win a Champions League knockout match as his RB Leipzig defeated Tottenham 4-0.
