Antonio Conte deserves a new contract to extend his stay as Tottenham head coach but the club should be wary of backing him in the January transfer market before he signs an extension, according to Glenn Hoddle.
“The key to it all is, does he deserve a new contract? Of course yes, but does he want to sign it? That’s the conundrum. So why would you say ‘let’s go and get three players and give him £200m’,” Betfair ambassador Hoddle told Express Sport.
“At the end of the season, he might be going and you have to get a new manager. This is a little maze, the two of them go together.
“If he signs an extension, I’m sure Tottenham will back him. The squad isn’t a finished article, it needs a bit more tweaking and yes, it will cost a bit of money.
