Spurs manager Antonio Conte pulled no punches in his post game comments after their 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa.

Antonio Conte's side have dropped out of the top four after just one win in their last five games. A Hugo Lloris error gifted Emiliano Buendia a simple chance to give Aston Villa the lead, while Douglas Luiz clever finish gifted them the three points.

It was another day that Spurs failed to deliver. A lack of creativity up front has hurt them, with players such as Heung-Min Son haven't performed to their ability. Once they went behind, they never looked like scoring.


One of the most concerning issues surrounding the team is their defending, with Spurs conceding several goals from defensive errors, despite Conte having a reputation of developing defensively solid teams.


Conte Goes On Extraordinary Rant

Sadly for Spurs fans, it's looking like another season of expectations not being met. After the game, Conte didn't hold back on what the club needs to compete.

He has never been one to hold back, and Conte made his feelings clear on what needs to change at the club.

We don't have a solid foundation. To start every season you need to add important players, not players that are not my players.

We need players that will make a difference. The players that are working with us, continue to develop and to improve. This way, you become title contenders like Liverpool, like Manchester City, like Chelsea, Manchester United, Arsenal.

The club knows very well what I think. The situation was very clear. I continue to work and to improve and to help you to improve the club, to create a solid foundation and then to develop.

You have to know that there are clubs who can invest £200m or £300m and others with different policies and I repeat you have to respect the policy.

I was very clear with the club because in this moment and before to become a title contender, because I remember very well in the summer at the start people talked about Tottenham as title contenders but in my experience it was a bit crazy to read this."

Quite the rant from Conte, who appears to be frustrated with proceedings at the club. Questioned have been raised about his future with his contract set to expire after this season.

If there is no signs of his demands being met, Conte's days at Spurs could be numbered.
