Antonio Conte Hints At Quitting Spurs In Extraordinary Interview After Defeat To Burnley

Spurs boss Antonio Conte has hinted at quitting in an extraordinary interview after defeat to Burnley.

Spurs were beaten 1-0 by the Clarets at Turf Moor, with Ben Mee's second half header inflicting a fourth defeat in five for the North London side.

At the weekend Conte's men looked like they had turned a corner with a stunning win over Premier League champions Manchester City at the Etihad, where Harry Kane scored a dramatic 95th minute winner.


Conte celebrated wildly and it felt like a result and performance that could get Spurs going again in the race for fourth spot.

But they were back losing again tonight and not for the first time, Conte sounded like a man who has had enough during his post-match interview.

The former Chelsea boss, who has been very vocal about transfers and the situation at Spurs, echoed those thoughts in his press conference speaking to the media.

Conte told Sky Sports: "In the last five games, we lost four games and it means there will be an assessment about the club, about me - because for me it's very frustrating.

"For sure the situation is this. I'm really sorry for the fans because I don't think they deserve this.

"But when you lose four of the last five games it means you need to make an assessment. The club has to make an assessment, also to speak together and understand which is the best solution.

"The players are always the same, the club changes the coaches, the players are the same, but the result doesn't change. I'm too honest to accept this type of situation."

The Italian resigned from Inter Milan months in the summer after guiding them to a first Serie A title in 11 years.

He took on the Spurs job following the dismissal of Nuno Espirito Santo in November, signing an 18-month contract with the option of an extension.
