I was thinking similar about why would he try and be sacked, but then imagine the absolutely thermonuclear meltdowns that must have been happening in private, and for how long, for him to then be like that in public. He seems like a man on the edge of a breakdown, seeing himself as a victim, and refusing to give in.It could well be utter horsesh|t of course, but a Spurs fan I know seems to think there's a clause in his contract meaning that if Spurs fire him, they have to pay him for the year's option they have on his contract.
It would perhaps explain the standoff on both sides.
It seems weird that a wealthy man like Conte would do his very best to be sacked just so he can be paid up for the last 3 months of the contract. Why trash his reputation by acting the c**t in public for a (relative to his wealth) small sum of money?
Likewise, you'd think that Levy would be decisive and sack him if it would 'only' cost 3 months' salary?
Sounds feasible, but probably horsesh|t. Whatever - here's hoping the drama continues and they crash and burn to help our run at 4th place
