Tottenham drew this afternoon in the Premier League against Southampton (3-3). The Spurs, who led 3-1 in the 77th minute, were joined in stoppage time.
Antonio Conte appeared particularly upset at a press conference after the meeting. The Italian, heckled by his own players in front of the media in recent weeks, harshly criticized his group, which does not form a team: “And the players? The players ? Where are the players? (…) I only see 11 players playing for themselves”. According to Antonio Conte, “they are not playing for something important” And “don’t want to play under pressure”.
An unacceptable situation for the coach: “Until now I was trying to hide the situation, but now no, because I repeat that I do not want to see what I saw today, because it is unacceptable and also unacceptable for the fans”.
Conte points the finger at the club
The ex-Inter and Chelsea coach then targeted the club’s management, just as much as his predecessors, being very scathing about the very empty Spurs trophy room: “Tottenham’s story is this: the owner (Daniel Levy) has been there for twenty years and the club has never won anything. For what ? Is the fault only with the club or with all the managers who have been here?
Appellant “everyone” To “take his responsibilities”Antonio Conte recalled that there remained “10 games” to be played until the end of the season. But the coach does not seem to believe in the chances of his team: “Fighting for what with this spirit, this attitude, this commitment? (…) For the seventh, eighth or tenth place? I’m not used to this position.”
The Spurs, 4th, are under threat from Newcastle (5th) and Liverpool (6th), who are two games less and, respectively, 2 points and 6 points behind. After this exit, Antonio Conte, at the end of his contract in June 2023, could be called to order by his management.
