On the statement, the Italian took some time to thank Spurs fans for their support during his short stint with the club.

"Football is passion. I would like to deeply thank everyone at Spurs who appreciated and shared my passion and my intense way of living football as a coach," he posted.
"A special thought to the fans who always showed me support and appreciation, it’s been unforgettable to hear them singing my name.
"Our journey together has ended, I wish you all the best for the future," he added.

Elsewhere, Sports Brief covered an interesting list of Premier League managers who are likely to receive the sack, according to analysed odds.

As per the odds, Conte leads the list of coaches in danger, and that comes as no surprise to many following his recent furious outburst.

Despite coming under fire at the start of the year, Graham Potter has turned the corner at Chelsea and finds himself lower down on the list.
