Antonio Conte, coach of Tottenham, after the pitiful defeat against the Slovenes of Mura in the Europa League Conference, this Thursday 2-1: “I must be honest and tell you that after three and a half weeks, I am starting to understand the situation. I can tell you that it is not easy, because at the moment Tottenham’s level is certainly not that high. There is a big gap with the best teams in England. I am here to work, here to improve the situation. We must have patience, I am here because I know there are problems to be solved.

I’m happy to be here, but at the same time I have to be honest and tell you that we have to work a lot to improve the quality of the team. The only magic I can do is work, bring my methods, my ideas of football. But we have to understand that we need time. […] I am not a magician, I have found players who want to work and who have a great commitment, but sometimes that is not enough. “
