Antonio Conte has confessed that he is prepared to walk away from Tottenham if it is decided that he is not helping the team.
The boss was visibly devastated after Wednesday’s 1-0 defeat to Burnley – Spurs’ fourth loss in their last five league games – and confessed that his future at the club needed to be assessed.
He also suggested that the players should hold more responsibility, rather than Spurs‘ various coaches over the years, despite insisting this current squad was ‘one of the best’ he had ever worked with just a few days earlier.
“I came here to help the club and if the problem could be the coach I’m ready to go, no problem,” Conte said after charging down the tunnel alone at full time.
He continued: “I am not used to this situation. I am trying everything but the situation is not changing. I am available and open with the club to do what the club wants.
“I want to help the club, I work a lot, I work very hard. I am giving 20 hours a day to Tottenham and the other four hours I sleep but it is not enough.
“The performance can be good and the commitment was good but we lost. For me the situation is unacceptable. To lose four of five [games] for Tottenham has to be a disaster.
“For sure we are to speak and have a conversation with the club to try and find the best solution to help the team not have this type of situation. It is the right moment to make assessment. I repeat, I am really frustrated.”
