Antonio Conte: Tottenham

Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte believes that the club had a difficult transfer window but understands that the club is looking to develop young players. Spurs missed out on Luis Diaz and Adama Traore but managed to bring in the Juventus duo of Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur. Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso left on the loan while Dele Alli joined Everton and Bryan Gil went to Valencia.

“Four players left in January – four important players for Tottenham. Two have arrived, so even numerically, instead of reinforcing yourself you may have, on paper, weakened,” Tottenham boss Antonio Conte said. “Then precise choices were made for many reasons, but I certainly never expected that in January four players who I still considered important would change their shirts for a thousand reasons. This shows the difficulty.”

“It is inevitable that in January it is very difficult to get two players like Bentancur and Kulusevski to sign who, I repeat, are the ideal prospects for Tottenham,” he added. “Tottenham is looking for young players, players to be developed, not ready players. The vision, the philosophy of the club is this. It is inevitable that if you want to grow faster and if you want to be competitive more quickly you need players with a lot of experience because they also lead to an increase in experience in your team. But then again, the vision of the club I realized is this and will continue to be this. For this reason, it will take a lot of patience and I continue to explain it to the whole environment and to the fans.”
