Antonio Conte will receive a massive bonus if he can secure a place for Tottenham Hotspur in next season’s Champions League.
After a disappointing start to the campaign under Nuno Espírito Santo, the London side looked in complete disarray. But following the decision to sack the Portuguese man, they’ve gone from strength to strength. They hired Conte in November, and he instantly hit the ground running.
He became the first Spurs manager in history to go unbeaten in his first eight league games. Furthermore, his 3-4-2-1 formation provided some much-needed excitement at The Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, and subsequently, the results began to pile in.
He took the team from ninth place in the table to fourth, and with recent victories over Arsenal and Burnley, their place in Europe’s premier competition is within touching distance. Should they make it, their Italian coach will receive a mouth-watering reward.

The pressure is well and truly on for the 52-year-old. Not only does Conte have the expectations from the fans to get his club into Europe, but he also has to do the job in the knowledge that there’s a massive pot of gold waiting on the other side. According to The Times, the club will pay the manager a whopping £2.5 million if he gets them into the prestigious tournament.
And as of right now, the path couldn’t look much smoother. ‘The Gunners’ currently stand just two points behind them, but with a hugely inferior goal difference. Therefore, all they need to do is avoid defeat against bottom-of-the-table Norwich.
When the two sides first met in December, Spurs breezed past them in a 3-0 win. Consequently, if Conte can get his team to play anywhere near their best, they should secure the victory with ease. And, of course, with that, an additional £2.5 million in the Italian’s bank account.
