Tottenham manager Antonio Conte has refused to give assurances about his long-term future at the North London club.
The Italian signed a 20-month contract when he was appointed Nuno Espirito Santo's successor in November.
He was asked three times at his Friday press conference to give assurances he would be at the club at the end of next season but declined to give a direct answer each time.

"But I repeat, I am enjoying my time at Tottenham and I have a good relationship with the people in Tottenham, with our chairman, with our general director.
"I want to work and improve this team. We have to be focused on the present to try to improve the situation.
"For sure I want to improve, we want to improve. This must be the important thing."
