Spurs will be looking to bounce back this weekend when they face bottom of the Premier League Leicester City after suffering a heartbreaking defeat late on in their game on Tuesday evening against Sporting Lisbon.
While fans who travelled all the way to Portugal will have been fuming with the result and performance, they seemingly may not have been as angered as Conte was post-match, as Gold has highlighted.
Gold has claimed that Conte was clearly fuming after the defeat and didn’t even end up speaking to his players in the dressing room after the match.
(30:00) “I know he was furious, I spoke to a lot of people that were behind the scenes after the final whistle and he was fuming, absolutely fuming in the corridors after the game and I think from what I understand he did that thing that he’s done before where he just doesn’t go and talk to the players.
Does Conte need to make changes vs LCFC?
“He’s so angry with them that he just lets them stew. I think Kulusevski even came out when he was coming through the mixed zone and said he hadn’t seen Conte after the final whistle.”
TIF Thoughts on Conte’s frustrations…
It should come as no surprise to people that Conte would have been furious after Spurs’ loss because of the way they capitulated right at the end, they lost to a team that currently sit seventh in the Portuguese top division and his side simply didn’t play well enough to win.
Spurs only managed to rack up an XG of 0.9 despite the likes of Harry Kane, Dejan Kulusevski, Son Heung-min and Richarlison all getting a decent amount of minutes on the pitch to try and create something.
Something else that will have likely angered him is that it could have been even worse for Spurs, had it not been for their captain Hugo Lloris, who pulled off at least two stunning saves to keep Tottenham in the game at the time.
