Antonio Conte Surprises Football Supporters as He Names Premier League Title Contenders
The manager of Tottenham Hotspur, Antonio Conte has named the clubs he feels can contend for the Premier League title.
The Italian was speakng at a press conference ahead of his first game of the season which is against Southampton at the White Hart Lane. Conte believes football analysts and supporters are making a mistake by ruling out Chelsea and Manchester United from the conversation.
I think you forgot Chelsea and this is a big mistake, you are talking about a team that two seasons ago won the Champions League and it is a really big squad. Last season they won the World Cup for the club and why is Chelsea not in this group of top teams? For me, Chelsea is in this group and they want to stay there and they deserve to be considered for this position. There is United, ( Manchester) don’t forget that because football is not one plus one equals two.
Conte is an experienced manager and understands what it takes to win the Premier League. He led Chelsea to the title during the 2015/16 season, he also guided Spurs to a top-four finish last season.
Tottenham supporters will hope their club can take it one step higher this season and maybe be crowned Premier League Champions at the end of the season.
