Jamie O’Hara delivers brutal 12-word Tottenham verdict on Conte interview

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte gave a very honest post-match interview on Saturday.

Spurs led 3-1 at Southampton before drawing 3-3 with the hosts equalizing in stoppage time.

Che Adams scored shortly after the restart but Spurs scored twice midway through the half.

Harry Kane scored with a header in the 65th minute and Ivan Perisic nine minutes later.

However, Theo Walcott put Southampton back on track with a header from Sekou Mara.

Saints won a penalty after Pape Matar Sarr fouled inside the penalty area in stoppage time.

James Ward-Prowse stepped up to score a ferocious penalty home and even earned the honor.

After the game, Conte did not retain.

“What we’ve seen in the last few games, I don’t like it,” he told Sky Sports, transcribed by Goal.com.

“I’m not used to seeing this. I see a lot of selfish players. I don’t see a team.”

‘This is the story of Tottenham’

Conte went further in his post-match press conference.

“There are still 10 games to play,” he said.

“Some people think we can fight with this attitude, this spirit, why finish seventh, eighth?

“What? I’m not used to fighting over this. It’s everyone’s responsibility.”

“They’re used to it here. They’re not playing for important things, yes.

“They don’t want to play under pressure, they don’t want to play under pressure. It’s so easy.

“The Tottenham story has been going on for 20 years. There are owners, but they never win anything. Why?”

Conte has never shied away from criticizing the teams he manages.

However, you could argue that his postgame comments were unprecedented in terms of honesty.

Tottenham-leaning talkSPORT pundit Jamie O’Hara points out that Conte no longer refers to Spurs as “us” but “them”.

It showed he “couldn’t wait to be sacked”, the former Tottenham midfielder said on Twitter.

It will be interesting to see what happens now.

Conte is not happy and he has made his feelings very clear.

Previously, it was a case of “Will Conte be at Spurs next season?”

Now, will he last until the weekend?
