Tottenham Hotspur was eliminated from the Champions League after a goalless draw with AC Milan during the second leg of their round of 16 clash on Wednesday night. AC Milan progressed due to winning 1-0 in the first leg at the San Siro.

Following the defeat, Spurs have lost the opportunity to win a trophy this season, having already been eliminated from the FA Cup and Carabao Cup and falling out of the title race in the Premier League. This means that the North London club’s wait for silverware will be extended to 15 years.

Conte admitted that he believes that his future as Spurs coach is uncertain following the defeat. He also spoke of the possibility that he could be dismissed from the role before the end of the season.

“I continue to work, I have a contract with Tottenham,” Conte explained, “I respect the contract. At the end of the season, assessments will be made with the club in the most serene way. Let’s see how the season ends. Maybe they can send me away even earlier. Perhaps the expectations were higher and may be disappointed. What matters for a coach is trying to work and raise the bar. This year we are struggling to raise the bar.”
