Antonio Conte’s problem that Daniel Levy and Fabio Paratici may face with a failed transfer period

Tottenham will have to be careful that the same problem with Antonio Conte from their previous clubs does not arise again, and that could be the case if they do not get the backing of Daniel Levy and Fabio Paratici during the January transfer window.

Conte revealed that the evaluations of his players have been made and that he has now held his meeting with those above them, which seems to have had positive results in all aspects.

football. London Understand that the Italian wants to bring in a new right-back, a midfielder and another striker.

However, no one has made it to N17 yet as we are halfway into the January transfer window and it will be a waiting game to see what is accomplished before the end of the month.

In Tottenham’s Carabao Cup semi-final match against Chelsea, they lost both games 3-0, resulting in performances that lacked quality and energy.

The 52-year-old has spoken that the Lilywhites aren’t at that “high” and need to “rebuild” which of course will take time and patience.

However, the Spurs boss showed his annoyance when asked again about the gap between his team and Chelsea and how long it would take to bridge that gap.

“I talk a lot because I have to talk to the media,” Conte said in a post-match interview with Sky Sports on Wednesday. “To always repeat the same topic, the same situation. Honestly, I’m a little bored, a little upset and that’s it.”

After he led them to the Serie A title last season, the Italian left his role as Inter Milan coach by mutual consent, which came after a dispute with the club’s owners over the size of his team amid the club’s financial struggles, with key players such as Ashraf. Hakimi and Romelu Lukaku moved on.

Conte is known for his clear management techniques and the serial winner is not afraid to leave the club if his views are not listened to.

So, even though it’s only been a few months since he took office, if the 52-year-old isn’t supported by the likes of Barracci and Levy at Spurs, it won’t bode well for the north London side.

In 2019 and after Inter squandered a two-goal lead in the first half to go on to lose 3-2 to Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League, Conte wasn’t afraid to talk about where he thought mistakes had been made.

“Some important mistakes were made in the planning stage, and we cannot play the Champions League and Serie A with such a small team,” the Italian coach explained.

“I’m tired of saying the same things over and over, maybe they can come here again and say something. I hope this helps them understand some things.

“I always end up saying the same things, about the process of growing up, about taking it step by step.”

This is consistent with what the Tottenham boss said in his post-match interview with Sky Sports, where he repeated himself to the same questions being asked.

Conte’s complaints were also seen at another club at which he was successful, Juventus, where he said: “You can’t eat in a €100 restaurant with €10 coin”.

This statement can be applied to the current situation at Tottenham – you can’t compete with teams fighting for the title when you don’t have players of this quality.

After that defeat to Inter, the Italian also spoke directly about his team.

“We have a very limited squad to face both the First Division and the UEFA Champions League this season… I mean limited in number and quality,” he admitted.

“Some players have to be on the field constantly and in the long run, you pay for it. I’m angry because that takes away the good work.”

Although the Lilywhites have enough players to perform most of their roles on the field, they cannot advance at the quality they so desperately need without the income and expense.

As Conte stated after that defeat with his former team, the key players in Tottenham’s first-team squad have to consistently play almost two games every week and rotations have to take place. However, Spurs have shown they struggle when the rotation takes place, highlighting the need for quality deep within the squad.

There have been many players linked with the move to N17 and some of them could provide the Spurs boss with that extra amount of quality needed.

However, unless he has the support of both Barracci and Levi, in terms of listening to his players’ ratings, targeting his proposed income and then providing the funds to bring those players to North London, the difficulties will continue.
