Antonio Conte launches explosive broadside at ‘selfish’ Tottenham players and owner Daniel Levy

Antonio Conte has called Tottenham players “selfish” adding the club have won nothing in 20 years under the current ownership after his side threw away a two-goal lead against Southampton.

Spurs led 3-1 with 74 minutes on the clock after Ivan Perisic added to earlier strikes from Pedro Porro and Harry Kane.

However, Theo Walcott cut the arrears just three minutes later and James Ward-Prowse fired a stoppage-time penalty to ensure the match finished 3-3 to deny Spurs three points.

Had Tottenham won, they would have leapfrogged Manchester United into third in the Premier League table. However, a draw means that Spurs remain in fourth – one point below United and two above Newcastle having played two more games than their top-four rivals.

Conte did not hold back in his post-match media commitments.

“The problem is we have shown we are not a team,” Conte told BBC’s Match of the Day. “We are 11 players. I see selfish players. I see players that don’t want to help each other, don’t play with heart.”

Conte would then take aim at the direction of the club in his press conference.

“They’re used to it here,” he added. “Don’t play for something important.

“They don’t want to play under pressure. They don’t want to play under stress. Tottenham’s story is this. 20 years there is the owner & they never won something. Why?

“Until now I tried to hide the situation. We can fight for what in this period, with this attitude, this commitment? For what? Seventh? eighth place?

“If they want to continue in this way, they can change the manager, a lot of managers, but the situation cannot change. Believe me.”

Conte is widely expected to leave his role as Tottenham manager at the end of the season.
