“Conte spent two years taking a bloodbath” Outspoken former player mocks Conte’s European record
By Bruce Grove -

Antonio Cassano has mocked Antonio Conte’s record in European competitions.

The outspoken former attacker was discussing Inter Milan’s European performances and slams Conte for struggling in the competition when he was the manager of the Italian club.

Conte has similarly struggled to win the competition with Chelsea and Juventus.

Tottenham was beaten by lowly NS Mura in their last European game and it seemed the Italian has brought his poor continental record to Spurs.

Cassano argues Conte had a strong team at Inter, yet he couldn’t perform in Europe.

He tells Bobo TV as quoted by Calciomercato: “Am I wrong or on paper Conte had the strongest team than Inzaghi? Conte spent two years taking a bloodbath in the Champions League, playing very badly: 

“Inzaghi, on the other hand, is in line with the championship this year and deservedly went ahead in the Champions League with a football beautiful and going to press, which Conte has never done, he only puts himself in front of the goal line.”

The Boy Hotspur Says

Spurs reached the final of the Champions League in 2019 and consistently performed well in the competition under Mauricio Pochettino.

Sadly, we no longer have the squad to compete in that tournament, but regardless, Conte’s first task is to help us qualify for it.

Winning the first-ever European Conference League wouldn’t be a bad thing, but Spurs should be a Champions League team.

If an early elimination from the Conference League will help us return to the top four, most Spurs fans will probably accept that sacrifice.

I hope we get knocked out of this conference nonsense.

Personally I don’t give a monkey’s about the conference league, the sooner we’re out of the darn thing the better. It’s an unnecessary distraction. There’s no pride winning that. Lets win the F A or League cup instead.

Damned if we do, and damned if we don’t. However, losing away to Mura is still a g-ddamn disgrace.

Now that I think about it, there are many, many European results that don’t really fit with us being “one of the best clubs in the world”. 2-7 V Bayern, 3-0 at Zagreb, 1-0 at Pacos, 2-1 at Mura. We were also eliminated by Gent at one point under Poch?

Awful. The mentality needs a complete revamp.

Yep we’ve got a Euro allergy for sure. All those years in the Ropey and we never got past a quarter final despite being annual favourites.

Got to the CL final, never made it past EL quarters and now at risk of being knocked out of the ECL group after losing to Mura.

Never a dull moment supporting Spurs.

I make him right.
The Spurs malaise in away games in Europe clearly started with Conte.

All managers have their quirks, however, you have to be judged on recent results and Conte clearly has delivered them overall. I don’t see him as a long term fixture at Spurs (whatever that is these days) but he’s at the top of his game and what we need right now.

We do not have a top 4 squad…. 7th-8th is the best we can hope for
