Jamie O’Hara delivers brutal 12-word Tottenham verdict on Antonio Conte interview

Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte delivered a brutally honest post-match interview on Saturday.

Spurs threw away a 3-1 lead at Southampton to draw 3-3, the hosts scoring their equaliser deep into injury time.

Che Adams then netted shortly after the restart, but Spurs raced away with two goals midway through the half.

Harry Kane headed home in the 65th minute before Ivan Perisic struck a fine effort nine minutes later.

However, Theo Walcott got Southampton back into it, slotting home from Sekou Mara’s header.

And deep into injury time, a Pape Matar Sarr foul in the box led to the Saints winning a penalty.

James Ward-Prowse stepped up and rifled home a fierce spot kick for honours even.

After the match, Conte did not hold back.

“What we’re seeing in these last matches, I don’t like it,” he told Sky Sports, as transcribed by Goal.com.

“I’m not used to seeing this. I see a lot of selfish players. I don’t see a team.”

‘Tottenham’s story is this’

Conte went even further in his post-match press conference.

“Now there are 10 games to go,” he said.

“And someone thinks we can fight with this attitude, with this spirit, for what the seventh, eighth place?

“What? I am not used to fighting for this. It’s every one’s responsibility.”

“They are used to it here. They don’t play for something important, yeah.

“They don’t want to play under pressure, they don’t want to play under stress. It is easy in this way.

“Tottenham’s story is this for 20 years. There is the owner but they never won something. Why?”

Conte has never shied away from criticising teams he manages.

However, you could argue his post-match comments are unprecedented in terms of honesty.

Tottenham-leaning talkSPORT pundit Jamie O’Hara noted Conte is no longer speaking about Spurs as “we”, but rather as “they”.

This suggests he “can’t wait to be sacked”, said the former Spurs midfielder on Twitter.

It’ll be interesting to see what happens now.

Conte is not happy and he’s made his feelings very clear.

Previously, it was a case of ‘would Conte be at Spurs next season?’.

Now, will he last the weekend?
