Tottenham manager Antonio Conte lifts lid on broken season with ‘selfish’ comments after southampton draw

Antonio Conte was left frustrated following their 3-3 draw to relegation threatened Southampton at the St Mary’s.

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte did not hold back in his criticism of players after they threw away a two goal lead to draw 3-3 at Southampton. A frustrated Antonio Conte claimed his players are selfish and that has been the theme of the season.

He told reporters after the game at the St Mary’s: “The problem is we showed we’re not a team.

“We’re 11 players that go into the pitch, I see selfish players, players that don’t want to help each other. Don’t put heart.”

Totetnham crashed out of the FA Cup to Sheffield United and a few days later limped out of the Champions League to AC Milan.

The season is now hinged on a Champions League qualification and they ended up throwing away a two goal lead to draw 3-3, conceding two goals in 15 minutes.

Conte admitted earlier to that the team was not used to playing under pressure and repeated a similar speech to the press after the disappointing result at the St Mary’s.

He added: “Tottenham’s story is this - 20 years there is this owner and they never won something. Why?.

“The fault is only for the club, or for every manager that stay here,” said Conte. “I have seen the managers that Tottenham had on the bench. You risk to disrupt the figure of the manager and to protect the other situation in every moment.

“Until now I try to hide the situation but not now because, I repeat, I don’t want to see what I have seen today because this is unacceptable and also unacceptable for the fans.”

The Italian manager’s contract is up in the summer and he’s not shown any indication that he’d be here next season with Tottenham linked with the return of former manager Mauricio Pochettino.
