Speaking on his latest YouTube video, Tottenham Hotspur reporter Alasdair Gold has been speaking about Antonio Conte’s arrival at the club.
What should Spurs do with Dele?
Although, in the case of Doherty and Winks, they have only tasted a matter of minutes on the pitch, so it is still a sign of an opportunity to prove themselves under the 52-year-old.
Speaking about Conte’s team selection conundrum, Gold revealed what he had been told about Conte’s discussions with his players regarding his starting XI.
“What I’ve been told by various people around the players is that they really respect the fact that in the first two games, at least, Conte and his staff have been very, very clear on, let’s say, if you’re not in the starting lineup, you will be explained exactly why you’re not in the starting lineup.
“Not only that, but you will then get told exactly what the plans are for you for the coming weeks and the long term as well. So, ‘not to worry, don’t worry, and this is why and tactically, you might not agree with it, but this is why for the team, it’s a good thing. But don’t worry, you’ll get your chance’. And apparently, the players have loved that.”
TIF Thoughts on Conte’s selection decisions…
We think it is great that Conte is reportedly coming into the job at Spurs with an open mind so he is able to make his own judgments on the players he has adopted.
Although this should provide certain players with an opportunity to save their careers, we think this should also be the final opportunity for specific individuals with the Lilywhites.
