Conte was speaking at a post-match conference after the 3-3 scoreline against the Saints on Saturday, March 18th, 2023. He blamed the players for failing the maintain a two-goal lead against their opponent.
We are not a team. We are eleven players that go into the pitch. I see selfish players, players that don't want to help each other and don't put their heart. Until now I try to hide the situation but now, not anymore. Here’s always the same, every season. The club has the responsibility for the transfer market, the coach has responsibility. But the players, where are the players? I see only 11 players that play for themselves. They are used to it here at Tottenham. They don't play for something important. They don't want to play under pressure, under stress. It is easy in this way. Tottenham story’s this for 20 years, there’s the owner but they never won something. Why?.
Tottenham remained in fourth place and lost the opportunity to go ahead of Manchester United following the game against Southampton.
