Tottenham Hotspur head coach Antonio Conte is ‘seemingly not happy’ after what the club have officially ‘accepted’, as shared by Alasdair Gold.
The Lowdown: Huge two games ahead…
The Premier League top-four chasers now face a huge few days as two crucial top flight games await in the race for a coveted Champions League place next season.
Qualifying for Europe’s most prestigious competition or not will cause a major ripple effect over the summer for Spurs.
Finishing above north London rivals Arsenal and beating them to the punch could gift sporting director Fabio Paratici and chairman Daniel Levy a significant financial windfall for the summer transfer market, potentially appeasing Conte and his chances to remain in London.
Missing out may well have the opposite effect with a lot riding on Thursday’s blockbuster derby clash against the Gunners at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Burnley then follow Arsenal very soon afterwards in the Sunday lunchtime kick off this weekend, a fact Conte really is not pleased with.
The Latest: Gold shares Conte feeling…
As shared by Gold, the Italian is ‘not happy’ that Spurs have ‘accepted’ to face Michael Jackson’s side at that time and day so soon after their huge bitter rival clash.
“Plenty from Conte on the quick turnaround for Spurs between the Arsenal and the Burnley matches. He’s seemingly not happy that the club accepted the Sunday lunchtime kick-off and seems to suggest that it’s not what big clubs do.”
The Verdict: Right verdict?
The former Chelsea boss will need every bit of assistance possible to make Spurs’ previously unattainable Champions League dream, and depending on the result tomorrow, Conte’s side may well have been boosted by further rest.
Alas, with the fixture set in stone, Tottenham will have to navigate the demanding end-of-season schedule as they look to bring European football back to N17, with supporters surely hopeful Conte’s frustration transforms into well-placed aggression on the pitch.
