Antonio Conte latest: Tottenham linked with Vincent Kompany as next manager

Tottenham have been told to appoint Vincent Kompany amid uncertainty over Antonio Conte's future.

The growing feeling at Spurs is that Conte will not be in charge for the club's next game, away at Everton on April 3, after launching a remarkable tirade on his players following Saturday's 3-3 draw at Southampton.

Conte is currently in Italy for the start of the international break but is due back this week, when his future will likely be decided and Spurs will start searching for a new permanent boss.

Former Manchester City captain Kompany has impressed at Burnley this season, his second managerial role after a two-season spell with Anderlecht, and ex-Chelsea player Tony Cascarino believes the ex-defender is the type of bold move Spurs would benefit from.

"In the past Tottenham have just made an obvious choice, picking managers with the best CVs, but it’s time for them to be brave, especially as Harry Kane may well depart, which would create a completely new dynamic at the club," Cascarino told The Times.

"I think Vincent Kompany would be an excellent appointment after his miraculous feats at Burnley this season. He’s had little money but transformed them, adopting a new playing style."
