Spurs manager Antonio Conte responded to the jeers of his home fans at the end of the first half in their 2-1 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday, and asked Jurgen Klopp a question.
Conte’s team started again slowly and was punished by Mohamed Salah’s excellence at the Tottenham stadium, where the Egyptian scored two goals, and the match ended with Liverpool winning 2-1.
Summary of the match between Liverpool and Tottenham
In his press conference, Conte opened the conversation by saying: “Before I answer, Jurgen was happy with the way we played? That’s important, Jurgen is a good coach (a reference to a previous statement in which Klopp criticized Tottenham’s way of playing)”.
Speaking to Sky Sports, Conte said: “It’s hard to explain tonight’s defeat, we deserved more but also after the first half in the dressing room I was happy with the desire and what we did.”
He added: “We put a lot of pressure on Liverpool and lost 2-0, but we didn’t know why. In the second half we played really well. The goalkeeper saved well and hit the post and the crossbar, and I think Alisson was the best player for Liverpool, the result was a disappointment.” I think the result is not fair.”
“It’s difficult to explain this type of game, of course the performance was good, we are managing a situation with a lot of injuries and we need to find new solutions, this kind of performance against a team like Liverpool gives me satisfaction because it shows hard work,” Conte continued.
And the Italian continued: “We scored in the second half and I think we deserved a lot from this match, but we have to know when we play against this type of team, the big match, we have to have motivation, I can’t complain about my players, I go home satisfied with The performance and the opportunities we created.”
Coach pointed Tottenham“We had the possibility to put pressure on Liverpool and we did it, we tried to press and then a long ball came and we conceded the second goal. We did well with the game plan that we prepared.”
“But now we are talking about a mistake, a defeat. I don’t know if it is positive to win badly or lose by playing well, but we lost the match,” he said.
And about the fans, he added: “I think we have to show great respect all the time to our fans, at the same time, if you ask me, if I’m a little disappointed, yes.”
He added: “The fans tried to support us from start to finish, and they certainly received the great effort made by the players. In the first half, it was unbalanced, and we could have finished the match better.”
And he added: “We didn’t score, and then in the second half, we attacked a lot and created many chances, and frankly, I think the result is unfair.”
Conte concluded: “I can’t promise at this moment to win titles for our fans because we are far from that at this moment, I have enough experience to be able to say that we are far from other teams that used to win and have the strength to win, if we can all understand this together. It’s fine, if we have time and patience, everything will be fine.”
