- Tottenham held by Southampton
- Conte blasts players after draw
- Carragher thinks manager wants out
WHAT HAPPENED? Tottenham threw away a 3-1 lead against struggling Southampton on Saturday in the Premier League which led to an angry outburst from Conte in his post-match press conference. The Italian described his players as “selfish” and not wanting to play under pressure in an extraordinary rant.
WHAT THEY SAID: Carragher reacted to the Tottenham manager’s diatribe after the game and thinks the coach is eager to leave the Premier League side.
“Conte wants to be sacked in this international break. Spurs should just put him out of his misery and do it tonight,” he wrote on Twitter.
THE BIGGER PICTURE: Conte is expected to leave Tottenham at the end of the season when his contract in north London expires. Saturday’s draw leaves Spurs still in fourth place in the Premier League table but now just two points above Newcastle who have two games in hand on Conte’s men.
