Antonio Conte Speaks on Tottenham’s Top Four Aspiration | Read
The manager of Tottenham Hotspur, Antonio Conte has revealed that things are difficult to explain following the defeat to Wolves at the White Hart Lane.
Spurs suffered their third consecutive defeat in the Premier League, for the first time since 2009. The poor run started with a 2-0 defeat to Chelsea at the Bridge, followed by a 3-2 defeat to Southampton.
These defeats have dented any hope of a top-four finish in the heart of the Spurs fans. Conte said after the game that it’s difficult to speak about the Champions League spot following the club’s form.
For me, it is very difficult to talk about fourth place because I am used to playing for other targets.The problem is that you can not buy winning mentality. You transfer it day by day and you are not sure that it’s day by day because they are some players that are more open and understand the process quickly other players need to understand this. Winning mentality in my opinion means when you play. I am ready to kill you and live. This is the difference in every duel, every second ball, every set piece.When you show better desire than your opponent when you understand the defeats have to hurt you a lot and not a little. This is not simple. The pressure and confidence is a part of our job, the pressure for me, the pressure for the players.
Tottenham are currently placed eighth place on the Premier League table with three games in hand.
