Tottenham under Antonio Conte aims to reach the top, and the head coach stated that the club’s fans need to be patient.
To take Spurs to another level, the Italian identifies two main factors: time and patience. The players can grow from a team of challengers to a team of winners. Conte has asked to give him a few more transfer windows, so that he can fully cover problematic positions.
With the arrival of the Italian coach, Tottenham’s game has indeed improved. In the previous campaign, thanks to Conte’s leadership, the team from North London was able to reach the Champions League, beating their eternal rivals from Arsenal.
Speaking to The Mirror, Antonio Conte admitted that the next matches will be crucial in testing the players’ strength.
It will be a big test in consecutive weeks, and Conte is determined to show his character.
“For sure in this moment, this is the moment this is the period the club can understand if we are really, really complete in the squad or maybe we will do better.
Indeed, Spurs cannot be blamed for their resilience this season. The London derby is a clear example of that, where Harry Kane equalized the score and saved one point in the last minute of the match. Also, Spurs were able to show character and hold on to the result against strong rivals Wolves.
The bright transfer window also allowed Conte to strengthen the team with quality players. However, the Italian specialist believes that there is still a lot to do to get to the top.
“For sure compared to last season we are more complete as a squad. You know very well though, that to reach other teams I think we need time, patience and at least two transfer markets to reach the same level.”
