“Totally capable”- European national team boss suggests Tottenham give Conte more time

Roberto Martinez: Tottenham Hotspur need to show patience with Antonio Conte

Belgian national team manager Roberto Martinez has advised Tottenham Hotspur to show more patience and back Antonio Conte. The latter was recently involved in a controversial interview, which eventually resulted in the club demanding him not to speak to the Italian media moving forward.

The Tottenham coach has certainly done a solid job overall taking over the reins from Nuno Espirito Santo. The displays have improved by quite a margin despite the poor run of form in recent times. But that has not stopped criticism creeping in at times, especially after the “1 per cent” claim regarding Champions League prospects. He did clear it out eventually by providing the appropriate context, but the damage was already done.

Speaking on BBC 5 Live (h/t Football.London), Martinez has expressed that Conte needs at least three transfer windows to make an impact at Spurs. He added that the Italian boss could certainly repeat his success at Inter Milan if he is given adequate time and backing to do his job.

“You need to give Antonio Conte at least three windows. What he did with Inter I think is one of the hardest jobs in European football… to beat Juventus after nine consecutive seasons. It took him 12 months, but he won the Serie A. I feel he is totally capable of doing that at any level and, already having the experience in the Premier League, winning the Premier League with Chelsea, he’s got exactly the understanding that’s needed.”

Could not agree more

Even if the 52-year-old manager’s record in European competitions is questionable, his domestic success cannot be questioned in any case. The boss has proven time and time again that with enough support from the board, he can do wonders at any club.

The Italian coach has done that at Inter, Chelsea and even at Juventus, where he laid the foundations for their dominance in the past decade. The North London side are not in a state where they can afford to haggle, considering how trophies have eluded them even during the time of their “Golden Generation”.

Our business in the January transfer market was close to being a disaster if not for some last-minute push made by Fabio Paratici and co. One could say even with that, the conduct was mediocre at best, which should not be how we should be backing the man in charge.

Even if the former Juve boss gets three transfer windows to do his wonders, the club must do better than what had happened last month. Whether that will happen or not would only be known in due time.

A football enthusiast who is madly in love with the beautiful sport.
