“It’s quite levelling when you..”- Sean Dyche on Antonio Conte’s shocking comments on being Tottenham manager

Will things turn around for the Italian manager?

Sean Dyche

Sean Dyche, Burnley manager, has expressed his astonishment over Antonio Conte’s recent comments following Tottenham’s 1-0 loss to Burnley.

“I can’t speak for other managers,” Dyche said of Antonio Conte’s comments.

“I don’t know the situation in there. He’s a very experienced manager, he’s won many things and worked with top players in Europe and the world. He’ll have a feeling why his words are what they are.

“In my experience, it’s a tough job. The only thing I would say is weirdly it’s quite levelling when you see managers of his level still finding the job tough. You forget it’s still a tough job even for the most experienced managers.”

Burnley, who could climb out of the bottom three with victory at Crystal Palace on Saturday if other results go their way, played with freedom both at Brighton and against Tottenham which defied their position in the Premier League.

And Dyche remains steadfast in his belief they can get themselves out of trouble.

“I’ve never not been sure,” he said. “I’ve never really overthought. I’ve always believed in what the players are doing. I’ve always believed in the power of a group of people when they’re pulling in the right direction, which they are.

“And I’ve always believed in working to get things right.”

Saturday’s 3-2 win at Manchester City briefly lifted the gloom of three successive defeats, but Spurs failed to fire up against relegation battlers Burnley and went down to Ben Mee’s 71st-minute header.

Conte described the current run as “unacceptable” and raised doubts about his ability to turn around the club’s fortunes, having been hired in November to replace Nuno Espirito Santo.

“We are doing everything to change the situation, but it’s not enough. Four defeats out of five is not good enough. This doesn’t happen to me,” the Italian, a serial winner with Juventus, Chelsea and Internazionale, told reporters.

“Maybe I’m not so good. Tottenham called me to change things but I’m too honest. I could just take my salary, but I’m too honest. We’ve lost four out of five games. This is unacceptable.”
