The exit of Antonio Conte went badly with the leaders of Tottenham. After criticizing his club’s winter transfer window for Sky Italiahis superiors would have forbidden him to speak to the Italian media, according to the English tabloids.
« Four players left in January, he explained in this interview. Four important players for only two arrivals. So instead of getting stronger, you may have, on paper, weakened the team.»
A few weeks earlier, he had already complained about the recruitment guidelines. « We know full well that there are quite a few teams above us. If we want to catch up with them, it will take time and patience. And above all, on the market, we must no longer make mistakes.»
Tottenham lost Ndombele, Gil, Alli and Lo Celso. In the direction of arrivals, only Bettancur and Kulusevski put down their luggage in London. And sportingly, the record is lackluster. The “Spurs” remain on three defeats, against Chelsea (2-0), Southampton (3-2) and Wolverhampton (2-0). They are in 8th place, 7 points behind Manchester United, 4th, but 3 games behind.
