Dimitar Berbatov shares his opinion on Tottenham Hotspur and manager Antonio Conte

Speaking in an interview (h/t Daily Mail), former Premier League star Dimitar Berbatov gave his honest assessment regarding Tottenham Hotspur and Antonio Conte. He highlighted that the North Londoners are prone to inconsistency- something that their fans would attest to themselves.

The Lilwyhites have suffered a lot of ups and downs this season. Whilst they have shown glimpses of great attacking football, their lack of being able to see out results on a consistent basis has haunted them for a very long time.

The Italian manager was brought in to pivot the club in the right direction but he has learned that the job at Hotspur Way is not an easy one. Conte would be happy with the result against Everton in their last outing but will his men be able to put in a similar shift against Manchester United.

In his conversation, (h/t Daily Mail), Berbatov shed light on Spurs’ erratic form and states that Conte is not getting used to the conditions also highlighting his great reputation.

“You probably saw Antonio Conte’s interview when they lost to Burnley, this is where I strongly agree with him, when you’re not familiar with inconsistency it can drive you crazy. It drives me crazy when I watch Spurs sometimes.”

“I bet Antonio Conte is familiar now with what is happening, he is a winner, his reputation is so great………On the other hand, Spurs can produce great results, last game a 5-0 win over Everton is a prime example. They played great football as well.”

What’s the solution at Hotspur Way?

The last time that the club managed to win a major trophy was back in the 2007-08 season when they lifted the Carling Cup. Since then, the Lilyhiwtes have struggled to get their hands on silverware.

Former manager Mauricio Pochettino came very close to doing that on occasions, most notably leading them to the final of the UEFA Champions League in the 2019-20 season- but ultimately lost to Liverpool at the last hurdle.

The North Londoners seemed to have gone in a state of a freefall since that time, with the Argentine manager being sacked the following season. Jose Mourinho replaced the former Southampton manager but was similarly let go of his duties after a while.

Antonio Conte has tried to instil his brand of attacking football in the club ever since his arrival. The Italian has a great reputation after having won trophies in a short span of time with clubs like Juventus, Chelsea, and most recently Inter Milan.

That being said, it would certainly take more than a few games to change the DNA of the club that hasn’t been able to compete at the top level on a regular basis for quite some time now. Despite their perceived lack of consistency, there have been some positive signs in their last couple of fixtures in the PL.

After being eliminated from all other competitions, a top-four finish in England’s top-flight footballing competition could now be viewed as a realistic target. This is easier said than done and Conte’s men will have to pull up their socks if they are to make this a reality.
