Antonio Conte Wishes Others At Tottenham To Also Be Blamed For Poor Form.
Antonio Conte, the manager of Tottenham, feels that he shouldn’t be held exclusively accountable for the team’s poor performance.
Conte, who left at least three prestigious teams before joining Tottenham more than a season ago, emphasized that other Tottenham staff should also be held accountable for the team’s dismal run.
Spurs have lost five of their last nine league games after being trounced 2-0 by league-leaders Arsenal on Sunday.
They dropped to fifth place in the standings, five points behind Manchester United and Newcastle United, who both have games in hand.
Spurs have only accumulated 10 points in their last 27 games as a result of their difficult recent circumstances.
On Thursday, they will play host to Manchester City, the current Premier League champions. The start of the game is set at 21:00.

Ahead of the must-win Premier League game, Conte said: “In England, I think there’s a bad habit that it’s only the coach [who] talks and explains.
“I’ve never seen the medical department coming here to explain. I’ve never seen the club or the sporting director coming here to explain the strategy or vision of the club.
“In Italy, before every game, there’s a person from the club that goes to speak to the media.
“I think for us it could be really better, otherwise there is only one face to explain the situation that I think is better for the club to explain.”
“Not every week, but at least every 15 days or once a month. I think it could be more simple for you to understand, otherwise, it can seem [as] if something is a criticism or negative and it’s not the case.”
