Antonio Conte Admits There's A Lot Of Work To Be Done At Tottenham Hotspur

Following Spurs’ shock 2-1 loss to Slovenian underdogs Mura in the Europa Conference League, Antonio Conte emphasized that “it will take time to get Tottenham back.”

Tottenham appeared to have rescued a point at Fazanerija when Harry Kane cancelled out Tommy Horvat’s opening, but Amadej Marosa struck a thrilling winner with the penultimate kick on Thursday.

Spurs made nine changes from their 2-1 Premier League win over Leeds United last weekend, and after Ryan Sessegnon’s dismissal, they played more than an hour with ten men.

However, the loss, which was Tottenham’s first under head coach Conte since his hiring earlier this month, will go down as one of the worst in their European history against a team with a UEFA coefficient ranking of 341, would go down as one of the worst in their history.

Spurs can no longer finish first in Group G, which means a two-legged play-off will be held in February if they can match Vitesse’s result in the final round of group matches in a fortnight.

Conte, who has a two-win, one-draw, and one-loss record in four games since replacing Nuno Espirito Santo, admitted that he needs to improve in all areas before facing Rennes.

“This is a bad loss for us. The performance was poor,” the former Inter boss said.

“We know we have a lot of work ahead of us. This is a difficult moment for us.

“We need patience to improve, to be good again. We were poor not only technically and tactically but also mentally. It will take time to bring Tottenham back.

“I don’t take this loss personally. I accepted this challenge to improve and build Tottenham to a better level. But it will take time.

“I want to thank our supporters for their support. We will analyse the game and I will talk to the players then.”
