Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has questioned the club’s business in last month’s transfer window.
Spurs brought in Juventus duo Rodrigo Bentancur and Dejan Kulusevski on deadline day, but also saw the departures of Tanguy Ndombele, Giovani Lo Celso, Dele Alli, and Bryan Gil across the window and the Italian has not held back in his dissatisfaction.
“What happened in January is not easy. Four players left in January. Four important players for Tottenham, two have arrived. So even numerically instead of strengthening you you may have, on paper, weakened.
“Bentancur and Kulusevski are the ideal prospects for Tottenham. Because Tottenham is looking for young players, players to be developed, not ready players.
“The vision, the philosophy of the club is this. It is inevitable that if you want to grow faster and if you want to be competitive faster you need players with a lot of experience because then they lead to increase the experience also in your team. But then again, the vision of the club I understand is this,” Conte is quoted by Sky Italia.
The Italian has been very vocal about the need of the club to gt in new players if they are to compete with the move set to put him at loggerheads with the club’s Chairman Daniel Levy and Managing Director Fabio Paratici.
