‘Conte was arguing’ – BBC pundit noticed the Italian specialist’s strange behavior with the coaching staff

    Tottenham had an excellent 2-0 away win over Nottingham Forest in the recent round of the English Premier League. A fine assist from Brazilian striker Riсharlison helped to make the win look more confident.

    Harry Kane made a double 10 minutes before the end of the match, and sealed the winning result for the team from North London.

    The Brazilian’s goal pass turned out to be truly incredible. With the outside of his foot the Brazilian managed in a difficult situation to push the ball to the England captain.

    Sixteen minutes before the end of the match, Italian coach Antonio Conte decided to replace Son Heung-Min with the Brazilian, and it bore fruit, but not everyone thought so at the time.

    According to reports from Clinton Morrison, the Italian specialist got into an altercation with his assistants because he wanted the replacement to happen as early as possible. The coaching staff didn’t exactly agree with the Italian’s decision.

    “Conte is arguing with his own coaches because he wants Richarlison on now!”

    Quite a controversial situation in which the head coach was right, because he clearly noticed a window of opportunity in which the Brazilian would be able to hurt the opponent’s defense. And by substitution he wanted to take advantage of the problematic position as soon as possible.

    Considering the result that Riсharlison delivered in the form of a brilliant assist, we can say that the Italian was a hundred percent right. By releasing such a quality player off the bench, you can expect to strengthen the team’s game as a whole.

    The third victory in four matches is Spurs best result since Redknapp’s era, and the coherent team play under Antonio Conte is visible to anyone. Therefore, this season, Tottenham will definitely be evaluated as a contender for the Champions League, and possibly for the coveted trophy of the Premier League.
