Report: Tottenham’s star strikers cause problems for Conte

    Speaking to Football.London, Spurs head coach Antonio Conte said he is having trouble deciding on his starting lineup with Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, Richarlison and Dejan Kulusevski.

    Conte explained that he now has strikers who are fighting for their place in the starting lineup. Each of them will be able to add quality to the game, regardless of their time on the pitch.

    “I think when you try to build something important, when you try to build something with ambition and try to be competitive and fight to win, you have to change old habits, otherwise it means you want to stay in balance and it means you don’t want to have ambition.

    “For this reason all the players have to accept the rotation especially up front, we have four players.

    “For me especially it’s very difficult right now to drop one of these four players, but I have to make the best decision for the team, also for the players.

    “For sure I think every manager, every coach likes this kind of problem. It means up front we have four players for three places.

    “We are in the right way because to face four competitions, especially if you are to play in the Champions League, you need to have a deep squad.
