Antonio Conte in shock return to Juventus

Antonio Conte, Tottenham Hotspur Manager

Tottenham Hotspur manager, Antonio Conte, is being linked with a sensational return to Juventus to replace under-fire boss, Max Allegri.

Allegri is under serious pressure in Turin, following a shock 1-0 defeat to bottom team Monza last weekend.

Juve have also lost both of their opening group fixtures in the Champions League.

They currently sit eighth in Serie A after two wins from their first seven matches.

This poor start to the campaign has led to speculation that the club might look to replace Allegri, who has been the subject of criticism from fans.

If Allegri were to lose his job, Conte is said to be “open” to a return to Juventus, according to reports in Italy.

Conte is yet to extend his contract with the Premier League side beyond next summer.

Things are looking good for Spurs this season, with the club unbeaten so far in the Premier League and only a point off leaders Arsenal.

Nonetheless, the 53-year-old has previously said he has “unfinished business” in Turin, and is believed to be Juventus director Pavel Nedved’s number one choice to replace Allegri.

Conte managed Juventus between 2011 and 2014 and lifted three Serie A titles before he dramatically fell out with club chief Andrea Agnelli after feeling he wasn’t backed in the transfer market.
