Arsenal Fans Celebrate as Antonio Conte Leaves Tottenham on Mikel Arteta’s Birthday
On Sunday, Tottenham announced their separation with manager Antonio Conte, which turned out to be Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta’s 41st birthday, much to the delight of Arsenal fans.
Conte and Arteta had vastly different seasons after Tottenham outplayed Arsenal in the top-four battle last season. Following Spurs’ 3-0 victory over Arsenal last season, which was critical, Conte sharply criticized Arteta. However, now Spurs are struggling to secure 4th place, while Arsenal is on top of the Premier League with an eight-point lead.
The Arsenal fans are delighted that Conte left Spurs on Arteta’s birthday, considering the long-standing tension between the two.
Tottenham Chairman Daniel Levy dismissed Conte after he condemned the players and ownership of the club following the 3-3 draw at Southampton. Cristian Stellini has been named the new interim coach while the team searches for a permanent manager. Fans have started speculating the next Tottenham manager.
Arsenal fans have taken to social media to celebrate the coincidence of Conte’s sacking on Arteta’s birthday, reflecting on the irony between the two who have had a good deal of issues between them.
