Conte ‘tore into his players’ when they returned to the dressing room after defeat to Sporting

Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte was furious after the final whistle in the loss against Sporting in the Champions League.

His team did not look exactly the same as in the Premier League matches. The Italian specialist himself admitted it, and came down on the team not shy of expressions.

Spurs tried to create something new, but the attacking players did not find the right rhythm, and as the Daily Mail reports, the Italian specialist, even after the whistle, continued to swear at his team.

After the defeat against Sporting, Antonio Conte was asked if the result was considered a reminder of how high the level of the Champions League is. The Italian specialist gave a laconic answer.

“Tonight we paid a lot and now we are talking about a loss against a team that showed to be used to playing in this competition. It’s a pity. For sure we have to analyse very well the game, also the players, it’s right but they know very well that this level is a very important level and to play this competition you have to continue to improve.

“You have to continue to improve yourself but this is normal. It’s right to continue to improve this process with the players.”
