Tim Sherwood believes Antonio Conte will quit the club this summer after highs and lows with the team, says his life at Tottenham has be a box office entertainment.

Former Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood believes the current Spurs manager Antonio Conte will leave the club this summer.

The Italians life at the London club as being called a box office entertainment after his highs and lows in the club.

Conte fumes at the result and performance against Burnley as he claims he is not the right person for the job.

The former Inter Milan manager, Conte replaced Nuno Espirito Santo in November and it has been a rollercoaster ride.

Former Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood joined talkSPORT show as he gave his thoughts on the current manager.

“The interview was amazing,” Sherwood said. “I love him, he’s such a box office person. He’s someone that you guys, and I’m working in TV now, will always give you something to talk about.

“His emotions are so high and low. You saw when they scored against Man City and he’s cuddling everyone who wants a cuddle.

“Then the next game against Burnley, it’s the worst squad of players he’s ever had.

“That is, unfortunately, the life of a football manager. It’s full of highs and lows.

“There’s no point telling him to find a happy medium in there, he does it his way.

“He’s a good manager at the right time for Tottenham. They are in that position because they haven’t got the consistency, they do not know how to win at the moment and is trying to get that mentality across to them.

“The longer he’s with the football club, he will embed it into them.

“He’s only got a year left after this season.

“Can I see them winning the FA Cup after this season? Absolutely, I think they’ve got every chance.”

Sherwood also believes that Conte will not extend beyond the end of his current deal, which expires at the end of next season.

He added: “He wants to win. So does Tottenham and Daniel Levy, he wants to win as well.

“Antonio has never spent anywhere longer than two, two-and-a-half years. He signed an 18-month contract and I’m sure Tottenham would have wanted to tie him down for longer.

“It was his choice.

“Harry Kane wanted to leave last summer and you are going to have that problem again.

“It’s a tough one to replace. If I’m Kane and Antonio Conte is encouraging me to stay for another year, I’d say ‘I don’t want to be at the club longer than you. If you commit yourself to the club then maybe I will’.

“It’s a difficult one. I think that realistically, if he’s there for the rest of next season that will be the distance he will go.

“I don’t see him extending his contract.”
