Tottenham boss Antonio Conte believes that the January window will not alone change the fortune of the club. He revealed that he is planning to meet the chairman Daniel Levy and managing director Fabio Paratici to discuss the January plans. Conte has made the need for extra quality clear after a number of below-par performances. He maintained that there is no shortcut to making up ground on Manchester City, Liverpool, Chelsea, and Manchester United.
“If we think this, football is not this way and at this moment there are important teams who see those as important spots this season,” Tottenham boss Antonio Conte said. “As I said to you before, to get a place in the Champions League it means somebody has to fail and it must be a big failure for there to be a place free in the Champions League. Otherwise, I think there are four big, big teams at this moment and then there are other teams trying to build with an important investment this year to close this gap.”
“But it is not only one transfer market or if you invest money and you have a switch in this way. Football is complicated. It is not only money, you have to build something important over years.” he added. “I am here to do this but I know it is going to be very difficult. Everybody keeps asking about getting into the Champions League but I want to be very honest with everybody and to tell them we have an important job to do and need time and patience.”
