Conte now understands the size of the job on his hands at Spurs hence says he’s not a “magician” and needs more time to close the gap between Spurs and top teams in England.

Tottenham head-coach, Conte watched on as his 10-man side were beaten 2-1 by Slovenian minnows NS Mura. Spurs went down to Amadej Marosa’s stoppage-time goal after Harry Kane had earlier canceled out Tomi Horvat’s shock opener.

 Conte, who was appointed to replace Nuno Espirito Santo three weeks ago has been tasked with taking Spurs back to the top of English football.

He said, “I must be honest and tell you that after three-and-a-half weeks, I am starting to understand the situation. I can tell you that the situation is not simple. At this moment for sure the level of Tottenham is not so high”.

“There is an important gap to the top teams in England. Of this we must not be scared. I am here to work, here to improve the situation”.

“I know that in this moment we need to have patience, time and I am here because I know there are problems to solve. After three-and-a-half weeks, I am happy to stay here. But at the same time I must be honest and tell you we need to work to improve the quality of the quality squad”.

“If someone thinks that a new coach arrives and Conte won in the past and then I am a magician. But the only magic I can do is to work. To bring work and work to improve, to bring my methods, my ideas of football. But we have to understand that we need time”.

“I want to be honest that we need to work a lot to improve the situation. We need time and patience. I don’t know what happens in the future. But I am here because I am happy to stay here. To work for Tottenham”.
