Antonio Conte sends a message to Daniel Levy post United defeat – opinion

By Mehdi Gokal -

Antonio Conte suffered his second league defeat of the season losing 2-0 to Manchester United at Old Trafford.

His side was utterly dominated by Erik Ten Hag’s men throughout the game. Conte’s passive approach to the game might see him win games vs the smaller teams but it does not seem to work against the top gun. Their only other defeat in the league came against Arsenal who beat them 3-1.

Conte appeared to send a subtle message to club chairman Daniel Levy after the defeat, attempting to turn the attention away from himself. He spoke about the past and upcoming transfer windows and what needs to be done. He said (via Football London):

“We can improve, we need to continue to work and for sure it is right with the club also to analyse very well why when we are going to play this type of game where the level is very high we are struggling,”

“I repeat we can work a lot on the pitch but we need to continue to work in many aspects.”

Despite the defeat, Spurs season has been going pretty good so far. They sit third in the league and are on the verge of qualifying to the next round of the Champions League as well.

Conte’s style of play may not be the most attractive but it does win him games. Although it can be argued that he might need to approach the game aggressively, specially against the top teams who like to attack.

The club also needs to do more in terms of backing the manager in the transfer windows than it has so far. Despite a number of signings in the summer, it is not enough specially considering they failed to address some of the key positions such as an attacking midfielder and a top class centre-back.

There is the basis of a good team there

Really? No there isn’t. And we’ve covered this endlessly.

I always say “Conte doesnt do 3rd or 4th” he now sees that this lot arent going to win the PL/CL so he will walk away in the Summer.

Yes
It isnt often that your team puts out 10 Turkeys on display.

Every manager fails under the bald midget. ENIC is a cancer destroying the club day by day.

Probably right. Levy will know he needs to do something in January, but then he knew that in the summer, and chose instead to engage in this charade transfer window of lots of cheap players with largely nothing to offer. January will be critical for Conte, Levy, and where we are in the second half of this season and beyond.
I predict much of the same predictable antics. Am I just being an ol’ sour-puss.
No.

Conte is the wrong manager for Spurs. There is the basis of a good team there but it won’t flourish under Conte. Too negative. Too concerned with his own mythology. And the ultra fitness regime isn’t working either. We now have the most tired team in the PL. To be honest we could have lost seven games but for luck. The players also need to have some guts and turn up for the big games. Kane is very good but he isn’t a great because whether it be England or Spurs he goes missing in these matches, Sonny isn’t much better. Hugo was a giant against Man Utd but he was the only one. The rest were abysmal.

Conte can’t take this team team made up of mainly second tier Premiership players much further. Which is why he’s off in the summer.
