Tottenham boss Antonio Conte branded his players “selfish” and for not playing “for the team”. The Italian coach exploded again after his side squandered a two-goal lead to end up drawing 3-3 on Saturday against struggling Southampton.
“The problem is that we have shown we are not a team,” Conte said on the BBC. “I see 11 players, I see selfish players. I don’t see players who want to help each other, who play with heart.”
Conte, whose contract runs out at the end of the season, also criticized the club’s board.
“The history of Tottenham is this. Twenty years the owner has been here and they have won nothing. Why?” wondered Conte, whose job could even be in jeopardy for the remainder of the season.
