Antonio Conte: Tottenham considering appealing UEFA's decision

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte revealed that the club are thinking about appealing the “unfair” decision by UEFA to postpone their Europa Conference League against Rennes. The game was called off due to a coronavirus outbreak at the club on December 9. UEFA concluded that the game could not be rescheduled and therefore Spurs were eliminated from the third-tier European competition. Conte believes that it was an unfair decision that they would take to the Court for Arbitration of Sport.

“It is not definitive, but there is another step to confirm or not this incredible decision,” Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte said. “We are very, very confident for the next step and I repeat we deserve to play the qualification on the pitch, not in the court. I can’t accept this. We are very, very disappointed with UEFA for this decision. It’s unfair for sure. We deserve to play for qualification on the pitch, not in this way. I’m very disappointed for UEFA’s decision.”

“Having a right to play, it is not fair for us [that UEFA] just say you are out of the competition,” Tottenham center back Davinson Sanchez said. “More [so] knowing that you didn’t play the game because of the Covid cases. We prepared the game, we were focused, we were doing everything to play Rennes. It was the night before that we got the news that the game was not going to be played. I think it is a bit unfair for us as a club, for our fans because it was a competition that we were struggling playing away from home but we still had a chance to stay in the competition so it is completely unfair.”
