Coach Antonio Conte has pointed out the existence of Tottenham Hotspur after a surprising 0-1 defeat to Burnley.
Coach Conte speaks after losing to Burnley
After beating Man City, Tottenham suffered their 4th defeat after only 5 matches. Thinking that the Rooster would fly high after overcoming the defending champion as well as the top team Man City, they were defeated by a Burnley in the relegation battle with a score of 1-0 at Turf Moor. That result was really a shock for Antonio Conte’s army.
Conte is not satisfied with his players.
It is quite understandable when coach Conte expressed his disappointment with the students. And again, he called on the team’s leadership to review the players, as well as evaluate what he did.
” The coach changes, but the players stay the same, and the results don’t change,” Conte said after the game.
“We will certainly review the past process with the club, because I repeat, results like that are not good for anyone.”
Against Burnley, Spurs controlled the ball 2/3 of the time. But Burnley’s 15 shots were more than the visitors’ 12, and the home side also had twice as many shots on target as north Lonon’s two. Burnely’s goal came in the 71st minute when Ben Mee punished Dejan Kulusevski’s miss just two minutes earlier, with a header.
Spurs are currently eighth in the Premier League table and seven points behind fourth. Anyway, the opportunity of coach Conte’s teachers and students is still there, when they are playing 2 matches less than Man Utd.
