Jamie O’Hara delivers brutal 12-word Tottenham verdict on Conte interview
Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte gave a brutally candid post-match interview on Saturday.
Spurs threw away a 3-1 lead at Southampton to earn a 3-3 draw, with the hosts scoring their equalizer deep in injury time.
Pedro Porro scored his first goal for Tottenham, hammering a shot into the net before half-time.
Che Adams then struck just after the restart but Spurs sped away by two goals midway through the half.
Harry Kane headed home in the 65th minute before Ivan Perisic pulled in a nice shot nine minutes later.
However, Theo Walcott got Southampton back in the game and scored home from a Sekou Mara header.
And deep in stoppage time, a foul by Pape Matar Sarr in the box resulted in the Saints winning a penalty.
James Ward-Prowse stepped forward and even took home a hefty penalty kick.
After the match, Conte didn’t hold back.
“I don’t like what we’re seeing in these last few games,” he told Sky Sports, as transcribed by Goal.com.
“I’m not used to seeing that. I see a lot of selfish players. I don’t see a team.”
“Tottenham’s story is this”
Conte went even further in his post-match press conference.
“Now there are ten games left,” he said.
“And someone thinks we can fight for seventh, eighth place with this attitude, with this spirit?
“What? I’m not used to fighting for it. It’s everyone’s responsibility.”
“You’re used to it here. You’re not playing for anything important, yeah.
“They don’t want to play under pressure, they don’t want to play under stress. It’s easy this way.
“Tottenham’s history has been like this for 20 years. There is the owner, but they never won anything. Why?”
Conte has never shied away from criticizing teams he manages.
However, it could be argued that his post-game comments are unparalleled in terms of honesty.
Tottenham-leaning TalkSPORT pundit Jamie O’Hara noted that Conte is no longer talking about Spurs as ‘us’ but as ‘they’.
It suggests he “can’t wait for the sacking,” the former Spurs midfielder said on Twitter.
It will be interesting to see what happens now.
Conte is not happy and has made his feelings very clear.
The previous question was: “Would Conte play for Spurs next season?”.
Will he survive the weekend?
