Antonio Conte believes that the Tottenham squad has become more mature this season and hopes that Harry Kane can prove he is one of the best strikers in history. They have recovered from four losses in five games and have taken 12 points from their last five games. Spurs are fourth in the table and have qualifications for the UEFA Champions League in their own hands.
“We need to continue to play the way we are playing in this period, after hard work we have improved a lot. In the past, we won games but now I think I am starting to see the right maturity in my team, the right solidity, and also the right confidence from my players in every game to try to get three points,” Antonio Conte said about Harry Kane. “In this league, every game is very difficult but if you compare the past, my team has improved a lot and I now feel more comfortable facing the opponents. Having more days, and more time to work with your players is important. Don’t forget I came in this season in November and did not have the same time as other coaches or managers, no pre-season to build my team with players I wanted to sign in the summer.”
“There were a lot of difficulties, but despite this, we have worked very well. It’s important to have more time to spend with my team to improve other tactical and physical aspects in the mentality and analysis, to prepare for a game every six or seven days instead of two or three days. It’s a total change, to be able to prepare well and accurately for games. That’s another reason the team is improving,” he added.
