After seeing his side let a 3-1 lead slip at St Mary's, Conte held an extraordinary press conference where he expressed anger at his "selfish" players.

The Italian leaves Spurs after 16 months in charge, during which he guided the club to a fourth-placed finish in 2021/22, his first season.

The club confirmed that Conte's assistant Cristian Stellini will take charge for the rest of season, with Ryan Mason as assistant head coach.

While his boss was absent in Italy through illness, Stellini helped to guide Spurs to three wins in February, helping Conte get nominated for the Barclays Manager of the Month award.

"We have 10 Premier League games remaining and we have a fight on our hands for a Champions League place," Spurs chairman Daniel Levy said on the club's official website.

"We all need to pull together. Everyone has to step up to ensure the highest possible finish for our Club and amazing, loyal supporters."
