Tottenham manager Conte snubs private jet and takes Ryanair flight from Turin to London leaving passengers stunned | The Sun

July 5, 2022

ANTONIO CONTE flew back from Italy on a RYANAIR plane as he snubbed a private jet in a move praised by football fans.

The 52-year-old Tottenham manager currently earns around £280,000 per week in North London.



But that did not stop him from being spotted using a budget flight to travel back from his summer holiday in Italy.

The ex-Juventus coach was returning from Turin to London via a means of transport which costs as little as £12.

Football supporters were stunned by the move but hailed Conte's desire to remain grounded despite his £15million-a-year deal.

One social media user said: "Man of the people… what’s wrong with him flying with normal hard working people?"

Another added: "Love this. Just because he is rich he doesn't take a private jet everywhere, pretty down to earth. Happy to travel with the plebs."

And a third said: "Good to see him not killing the environment getting a private jet."

Meanwhile, Ryanair themselves responded: "What do we think of Tottenham?🎵"

Conte's decision to fly with Ryanair comes just 24 hours after Bayern Munich forward Robert Lewandowski decided to take a commercial flight back from his holiday in Spain.

The 33-year-old appeared to turn down the chance to fly back to Germany on a private jet despite his reported £369k-a-week wages.

Meanwhile, Conte's money-saving methods are not being reflected by his club as Tottenham continue to splash the cash this summer.

Spurs have already confirmed four new arrivals – Fraser Forster and Ivan Perisic on free transfers, Yves Bissouma for £25m, and Richarlison for £60m.

And the club are being linked with even more signings before the window shuts.

Middlesbrough right-back Djed Spence and Barcelona defender Clement Lenglet both appear to be closing in on moves to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
