Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte expressed his commitment to the club and said he would discuss a potential extension to his contract at the end of the season.

The Italian, who joined Spurs on an 18-month contract in November, appeared to question his own future at the club after their defeat to Burnley in February, but has since walked back his statements.

"At the moment there is only one truth - I am committed to this club for another year," Conte told reporters. "After four months, I think the club have understood the way I want to work and I understand the club.

"In three months, at the end of the season, we will continue to improve this knowledge of each other and then to find the best solution for both.

"I am enjoying working for this club. I like to fight for something important for this club."

Conte also stressed the importance of planning for the future, and added that the signing of Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur in January was a step in the right direction.

"I think it is very important to develop a good vision, because if you have a good vision in football and you have a lot of hope, you can be successful," Conte said.

"In January we showed that we have just started to improve the situation. We need a big, big improvement and we have started to do this with these players.

"But in the future, you need to have other important steps and to have ambition."

Spurs face fellow top-four contenders Manchester United in the Premier League on Saturday (Mar 12).
