Tottenham Hotspur head coach Antonio Conte let rip into his personal gamers in a rare rant after they missed the possibility to maneuver as much as third with a 3-3 Premier League draw at Southampton.
Spurs regarded set to assert a significant win of their quest for Champions League qualification when Ivan Perisic fired residence within the 74th-minute after earlier efforts by Pedro Porro and Harry Kane.
Bottom-of-the-table Southampton as an alternative mounted a tremendous fightback with Che Adams and Theo Walcott lowering the deficit earlier than James Ward-Prowse fired residence a stoppage-time penalty to increase Tottenham’s winless run on the highway to 5 matches.
Recent defeats at AC Milan and Sheffield United noticed Spurs exit the Champions League and FA Cup to make it a fifteenth consecutive season with out silverware and their supervisor took goal in any respect events in an astonishing 10-minute interview following their collapse at St Mary’s.
“If we are going to discuss the penalty, it means we don’t want to see the other situations,” Conte stated.
“I think it’s much better to go into the problem because the problem is that, for another time we showed that we are not a team.
“We are 11 players that go into the pitch. I see selfish players, I see players that don’t want to help each other and don’t put their heart (in).
“Why? Because they are used to it here, they are used to it. They don’t play for something important yeah. They don’t want to play under pressure, they don’t want to play under stress.
“It is easy in this way. Tottenham’s story is this. Twenty years there is the owner and they never won something but why? The fault is only for the club, or for every manager that stays here. 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 now, no because I repeat, I don’t want to see what I have seen today because this is unacceptable and also unacceptable for the fans.
“They follow us, pay for their ticket and to see the team another time, to have this type of performance is unacceptable. We have to think a lot about this.”
