Conte: I'm ready to die for Spurs until end of season

Antonio Conte says he is "ready to die" for Tottenham until the end of the season, but admitted the contract he signed at the start of his tenure was "strange".

Speculation over Conte's future has intensified following Wednesday's limp Champions League exit to AC Milan, with the Italian's current terms expiring in the summer amid a growing belief he will depart before the end of the season.

But the 53-year-old insists he will see out the remainder of the season ahead of Saturday's Premier League home match against Nottingham Forest, the first of 12 games remaining for Spurs.

Asked whether he wanted to stay, he replied: "You know my opinion and my desire. I've said to you a lot of times and during the press conference that the situation I have found - we are far to aspire to be competitive and try to win.

"For a long time I've said we need time, we need patience and I see that here the environment has no patience, or maybe the environment doesn't want to understand the reality.
