Tottenham’s philosophy is players who can improve, not finished articles, reveals Antonio Conte
Tottenham boss Antonio Conte has revealed the club’s vision is to sign players who can improve and not finished items, although he believes they need to change that to succeed. The Italian also added that there was a lack of trust at the club and that affected some things.
While Tottenham have appointed Antonio Conte, the Italian’s time at the club has been up and down so far, although he has reversed them with Spurs now back among the challengers for a European spot. However, their form has been inconsistent so far and Conte was far from supported in the transfer window as Spurs signed just two players. They let four players go, including Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso, which further reduced Conte’s squad.
This worries many fans as Conte in the past has been backed by players set to win trophies in his previous jobs, although that hasn’t been the case at Tottenham so far. The Italian admitted this and revealed that Tottenham’s ‘vision and philosophy’ is to sign players who are young and can still improve rather than ‘the finished article’. But Conte believes that to be successful Spurs need to change that philosophy and ‘raise experience levels’.
“Bentancur and Kulusevski are ideal prospects for Tottenham because the club is looking for young players who can improve and develop, rather than players who are the finished article. That’s the story here. That’s the link. This is the vision and the philosophy of the club” said Conte. , reported Sky Sports.
“It’s inevitable that if you want to improve faster and be competitive faster, you need more experienced players because they increase the experience levels within the squad. Like I said, I have understood that this was the vision of the club here.
The North Londoners have struggled for success in recent years with their appearance in the Carabao Cup final last year the last time they came close to winning a trophy. It played into their transfers, with Spurs losing Adama Traore and Luis Diaz in January, and Antonio Conte admitted there was “a lack of confidence” at the club.
“When you accept a position at a club that hasn’t been successful for so long, a lack of confidence is inevitable. I could see some situations that could develop, but then when you’re in that situation, you get it. understand better.
“What happened in January was not easy. Four players left the club and they were important. Two came in, so in numerical terms instead of getting stronger, on paper the team has been weakened,” he added.
