Coach Antonio Conte has responded to Tottenham Hotspur’s downward trend with confidential statements. The 1-0 defeat at Burnley FC on Wednesday was his team’s fourth defeat in five Premier League games.
“I need to talk to the club. We need to evaluate the Tottenham club and myself. We need to find a better solution. I can not accept that I will continue to fail,” Conte later said. “I’m ready for any decision because I want to help Tottenham. I’m very honest, just close my eyes and keep saying: Well, my salary is good. I have ambitions.”
Conte added: “Tottenham brought me to improve the situation. But I’m not good enough to improve it. It’s very frustrating. I try everything but the situation has not changed.” The 52-year-old Italian took over from Nuno Espirido Santo, who was sacked as Tottenham manager in November.
He has since won 11 of 21 matches, drawn three and lost seven. In the Premier League, Chelsea scored nine unbeaten runs under Tottenham Conte before appearing in the Southampton and Wolverhampton Wanderers. The leaders were emotional 0: 1 at Burnley in the emotional 3: 2 against Manchester City over the weekend. Ben Mee scored in the 71st minute.
Tottenham are currently eighth in the Premier League. That team has already been eliminated from the Conference League and League Cup. In the round of 16th FA Cup on March 1, they face Middlesbrough FC.
