A lot of Tottenham Hotspur fans have flooded to Twitter to share their thoughts on some of the comments to emerge from Antonio Conte on Wednesday night. 

The Lilywhites followed up their draw in the Premier League at the weekend with a victory in the Carabao Cup on Wednesday night.

Have you been impressed with Moura under Conte?





Spurs secured a spot in the semi-finals against Chelsea with a 2-1 victory over West Ham United in north London, which saw Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura get their names on the scoresheet.

Conte spoke highly of the Brazilian in his post-game press conference (as per Alasdair Gold):

“Lucas Moura is one of the best players in our squad. He links quality with quantity and he’s also a wonderful person. You always find on him a smile and I love to work with these type of players,” he said.

What did these Spurs fans have to say?

“Conte agenda started”

“I know Conte is emotional right now but this is a step too far.”
“Conte out”
“’I’m loving Conte but this is worrying!”
“Conte out!!”

The 29-year-old has made a bright start to life under the Italian manager since his appointment in November, with three goals and two assists in eight appearances (via Transfermarkt).

However, the Brazilian had just one goal and one assist to his name before Conte arrived, so it is not so surprising that these fans are still not fully convinced by the winger and are hoping this is not a sign he will be a long-term feature under the Italian manager.
