But the Italian said: ‘I repeat that I am enjoying myself here.

“There is a great atmosphere, a great stadium, a training ground and our fans are incredible. They are always behind us.

I am enjoying my time at Tottenham and I want to improve the situation. People deserve so much more.

“I am strong and I will stay strong until the end of the season. The players understand me and want to improve. We are seeing this improvement but it will take some time.

Conte signed an 18-month contract with another general option when he replaced Nuno Espirito Santo at the start of winter.

Since the Champions League final in 2019, Tottenham have spent over £300m on new players without significantly strengthening the first team, and Conte quickly identified situations he needed to address.

The manager had crucial conversations with Daniel Levy and director of football Fabio Barracci this week, setting out his feelings.

Conte is known to want to sign striker Adama Traore from Wolves and is ready to let defender Matt Doherty go the other way. He also wants a central defender and a substitute for striker Harry Kane.

Another striker, Steven Bergwijn, has been linked with a move to Ajax, but Conte has said he wants to keep the Dutchman at the club.

The 52-year-old also revealed that there was a new suspected case of Covid at the club and that defender Eric Dier would miss Sunday’s match due to the injury.
