What Antonio Conte has said
Conte was understandably far from impressed by his players’ display tonight.
And the Tottenham head coach has sent a message to the fans.
Conte told Football.London: “I think this team is very young but at the same time we have to work and improve because the details move the final result.
“I did not like what happened tonight, the performance. I must be honest and tell you that after three and a half weeks, I am starting to understand the situation. I can tell you that the situation is not simple.
“It is not simple because in this moment because for sure the level of Tottenham is not so high. There is an important gap to the top teams in England.
“Of this we must not be scared. I am here to work, here to improve the situation. I know we have to work hard but we have also to improve the quality of the situation, because if we want to be competitive.”
Tottenham players need to step up
Upsets happen in football.
However, in our view, Tottenham should have won against NS Mura.
They simply had to.
Spurs had the better team and should have picked up all three points with ease.
Conte must now realise the work he has on his hands at Tottenham.
