Antonio Conte launched extraordinary rant after 3-3 draw at Southampton in which he called his Spurs players ‘selfish’; the squad will report back to the training ground on Tuesday as normal following two pre-planned days off.
Conte launched an extraordinary rant in which he called his Spurs players “selfish” after his side threw away a two-goal lead at bottom side Southampton.
He also appeared to attack the club’s ownership but it is understood Conte’s clarification to the board pointed out he asked why only the club and managers take responsibility for not winning while the players get “alibis”.
Players and staff are currently on a pre-scheduled two days off and will report back to the training ground on Tuesday, which would have been the case regardless of the result.
There has been no public reaction from the players in response to Conte’s comments as yet, with Cristian Romero and Pedro Porro the only players to have posted on social media since the outburst.
