Tottenham boss Antonio Conte believes that a Top Four finish is not possible with the current form. They lost their third consecutive game after conceding two sloppy goals against Wolves. Conte was unbeaten in nine games after taking over from Nuno Espirito Santo and seemed to be in pole position for a Top Four spot in the Premier League. This was the first time that he has lost three consecutive games since 2009.
“When you lose two games at home and against Chelsea – for a team that wants to qualify for the Champions League, it’s impossible to happen,” Tottenham boss Antonio Conte said. “We know we have to fight to build something important with the situation but it’s important to know the situation. Maybe our fans shouldn’t be disappointed with the defeat – instead, they should try and push us and stay behind us. The players need to find the right atmosphere and feel no pressure about a target that in this moment you can’t reach. I’ve been saying this since my arrival.”
“We need to be realistic and together. Also with our fans. The fans need to understand to have patience, to wait to rebuild again to a situation they were used to in the past. Now the situation has changed, not only with me but with the other coaches,” he added. “We are working hard with the players and there is a great commitment but it’s not enough if we want to be competitive. We have to wait. Step-by-step. And it’s important to be realistic and very clear.”
