‘Tore into his players…’ – Report reveals how Antonio Conte punished his players following a ‘sluggish’ loss to Sporting

According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham manager Antonio Conte  asked his players to report to training at 11 a.m. on Wednesday as a possible punishment for their poor performance against Sporting Lisbon on Tuesday night.

Tottenham looked slow and leggy despite not playing over the weekend, conceding twice in the dying few minutes of their season-opening defeat.

Spurs boss saw his club fall 2-0 in Portugal’s capital. 

Conte is also said to have ‘ripped into his players’ in the locker room following the loss.

Conte ‘directed’ his players to report to Hotspur Way for training at 11 a.m., according to the report.

‘Conte had not told the players of their training schedule,’ he said, adding that they will begin earlier than expected following the game.

Conte’s decision will serve as a reminder to Spurs players of his high expectations for the team.

And the expectations are high, given that Spurs have won 14 points out of a possible 18 in the league and defeated Marseille in their first Champions League encounter.

Conte’s seriousness in dealing with their first defeat demonstrates the serial winner that he is and expects his team to be.

Conte will now be looking for a response when Tottenham visit struggling Leicester on Saturday evening.
