After having openly criticized the club’s policy in terms of recruitment over the past few seasons, Antonio Conte has been called to order by his management.
Appointed on November 2 to replace Nuno Espirito Santo, the Italian technician has already stood out for his outspokenness across the Channel. The criticism Conte made during his recent interview with an Italian outlet clearly annoyed Spurs boss Daniel Levy. The latter would have simply forbidden his coach to speak to the Italian press until further notice.
“They asked me questions about the transfer window, if I was happy. I said that the club had done their best (…) Sorry, but I think I created a bit of a mess, especially because I had an interview with Italian media. It means that from now on the club doesn’t want me to talk to the Italian media anymore, maybe because the translation of my thoughts is not so clear. (…) We have four months before the end of the season. We have to try to do our best to finish in the best possible place, and then we’ll see.”dropped the technician of the London club.
