The highly-rated tactician spent three years with the Bianconeri between 2011 and 2014, helping them to a hat-trick of Serie A titles, and also took in 420 appearances for the club as a player. It has been suggested that, with Juve struggling for form under Massimiliano Allegri and with Conte’s contract due to expire next summer, he could be lured back to Turin by an enticing offer.

Conte, who is focused on Premier League and Champions League quests at Spurs, insists that is not the case and has responded to those calling his commitment and loyalty into question by saying: “This is disrespectful for the coach that works in Juventus and also disrespectful for me working for Tottenham.

“There doesn’t exist a right time (to sign a contract). It could be tomorrow. It could be the last day of the Premier League season. The most important thing for me and the club is to understand we want to continue together, to go in the same direction. At the right time, I will take the best decision. At this moment, I’m really happy.”

Conte took the reins at Tottenham in November 2021 and guided them to a top-four finish in his debut campaign, with the plan being to build on those foundations in 2022-23 as a success-starved club seeks to bring a 15- wait for major silverware to a close.

Spurs, who boast one of only two unbeaten in the Premier League this season, will be back in action on Saturday when taking in a derby date with neighbours Arsenal at Emirates Stadium.
