Conte claims his Spurs side are weaker after signing Juventus pair

February 16, 2022 - 11:30 pm

Tottenham Hotspur brought in both Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur from Juventus in January, but manager Antonio Conte admitted that his squad was now weaker than when the transfer window opened.

The north London club allowed Tanguy Ndombele, Lo Celso, Dele Alli and Bryan Gil all to depart last month, while both Kulu and Bentancur arrived in the final week of the window.

The manager has now admitted that his side is weaker than when the window began, by telling Sky Sport Italia(via the BBC): “What happened in January was not easy..

Spurs boss Conte added: “We lost four players. Four important players for Tottenham and we brought in only two.

“So even just in terms of numbers, rather than reinforce the squad, we, on paper, may have weakened it.”

Juve on the other hand, we brought in two players whilst allowing two to leave, and are very much a stronger squad with a better balance within our team, and are most definitely going to profit from our transfer dealings. While Conte’s side have lost both their league matches since signing the pair from us, we have been in top form thus far, with Vlahovic already scoring two from his three outings also.

    Perhaps now fans would actually start owning up to the level of decay that was in the squad fro the past 3 seasons and stop escaping the obvious ti paint Ronaldo as the bane; Juventus had made consecutive wrong decision in signings, perhaps until Chiesa and the Zaka-Vic pair

    ronaldo was one of the worst signings we’ve ever made, destroyed our dna, the morale of the team and our goal difference, body language on the pitch spread to the team cost us ten in a row and a disastrous first half of the season by leaving late in purpose because we dared to substitute an old man and brought the most toxic fan base I’ve ever had to deal with every created. Perhaps people will stop with the myth that he didn’t make any issues worse because conte lost for played and replaced two which is simple maths as to why he’s weakened. Plus I was typed off defending one of our players for assault. Nothing more unpleasant. Ask united players and all are not convinced by ronno on the slightest. Three coins in a row not happy with him and have result and locker room issues, seems there’s a pattern

    The clubs in a row with extra issues following a player. Simple logic
