Antonio Conte has once again suggested that he could leave Tottenham this summer if his ambitions aren't aligned with that of the board.

Conte's contract runs until the end of the 2022/23 season but has repeatedly hinted that he may walk away from the club in recent weeks amid Spurs' poor run of form.

Ahead of their trip to Brighton on Wednesday, the Italian was again quizzed on his future, and he admitted that he may 'stop' managing Tottenham if his vision is different to that of the board and managing director of football Fabio Paratici.

“At this moment the best thing we can do is to be focussed on the present," Conte said. "Then, at the end of the season, everyone has to speak about their own vision.

“I speak about my vision, and I think also the club will speak about their vision, and Paratici will speak about his vision, and then we will see.

“After this we will see, now is too early. We have to be in the present, the future is very far in this moment. For sure there will be a moment when we will go to take decisions."

Conte added: “Honestly I have my vision and it does not change. The vision was the same in the past, the vision is the same in the present, the vision will be the same in future. The vision will be this. I stop if the vision of someone is not the same.

“I have a vision, one vision: I want to fight to win. I want to fight to be competitive. I want to feel that we need one per cent to win the title or a trophy in which we participate. We have to feel this. This is my vision and I continue to have this vision.

“And then I know that there are different visions and many clubs have different visions but my vision brought me to be competitive and for sure I follow my vision in any case."
