Antonio Conte Tottenham's

Antonio Conte described Tottenham’s January departures as strange and pointed out to mistakes made during the beginning of the window as the main reason. Tanguy Ndombele, Bryan Gil, and Giovani Lo Celso all left the club out on loan with Dele Alli moving to Everton permanently on a deal that could amount to £40m.

“The players that went on loan, needed to play more games. I think it was right for both sides, for the club and also for the players because these players needed to play more games,” Tottenham’s head coach Antonio Conte said. “It was strange to send in January three players to go on loan and one player to sell. It means that maybe in the past, you have to see what you did and maybe to understand that there were some mistakes in the past.”

“Usually, you buy players to reinforce the team, but in the last few years, if you send away players on loan who you bought in the last two or three years, it means maybe there was something wrong you did in the past,” he added. “Honestly, before I arrived at Tottenham, to read the list of the players of the squad, you considered the players you have in the squad as important players. Ndombele played a lot and it was the same for Lo Celso and Gil. Only when you stay in the situation, do you understand very well which is the best solution for the club, the players at this moment. To lose four players in January is not normal.”
