Antonio Conte has revealed that he cannot give assurances that he will still be at Tottenham come the end of the season, but insisted that he is happy in north London.

The Italian tactician discussed the possibility of leaving Spurs little over three months after joining the club following a 1-0 loss at Burnley on Wednesday, but has since said that he intends to carry on and try to improve the situation.

However, when asked if he would still be in charge come May, Conte was very careful with his wording.

"I think that in this moment I guarantee the best commitment that I can give to this club. I have another year of contract with this club but you know very well that football is very strange," he said.

"You can have three, four years of contract and the club can sack you. Sometimes someone decides to go away. Football is very strange. I think now that the most important thing is that I am enjoying my time with this club.

"I think that we are working very well. I think that we are starting to build something important for the club. This is the most important thing. I always say, when I arrive in one place and I find a place in a way, when I have to go away from this club, I have to leave this club much better than I found it. I have done this with every club I have worked at.

"For sure, it will be the same for this club. If you ask me in four months, one year, two years, three years. Now it is very difficult to answer this question, but for sure, I am working to improve the club in every aspect.

"I would like to take satisfaction with this club, but you know that football changes quickly, but I think in this moment, I repeat, I am totally committed to Tottenham and I have a good relationship with the club, especially with Daniel [Levy].

"He knows very well what are my thoughts and for this, this is the most important thing for me. He knows very well what are my thoughts.

"Also because he wanted me here and for this reason, I say always thanks for this opportunity that he gave me, but he knows very well what are my thoughts for the present and what is my vision, everything, everything. I think this is the best way to have a direct way with the owner. It is ok."
