Neil Warnock tells Tottenham Hotspur fans to stop complaining about Antonio Conte

Veteran manager Neil Warnock has told Tottenham Hotspur fans to stop complaining about their head coach Antonio Conte.

A certain section of the fanbase has criticised the Italian for his defensive mindset and have asked for a more attack-minded style of play from their manager.

However, while speaking exclusively to talkSPORT the former Crystal Palace and Middlesbrough manager has hit back at the Spurs fans.

“The problem is that you only hear from the minority of fans who want to complain about the bread and butter and think that everything is wrong. You’ve got to take it with a pinch of salt as a manager and let it bounce off you. He’s brilliant, he’s the best that there is at defensive shape and he’s got players who create chances and they should have scored. You’ve got what you’ve got and you can complain all you want, but he’s one of the best in the world.”

Spurs have only won one of their last four fixtures in all competitions. They have suffered two humiliating defeats including 2-0 to Sporting Lisbon and 3-1 to Arsenal in the process.

The Lilywhites have played all their matches this season with a very similar setup. They like to sit back and then counter their opposition with a quick counter-attack that usually involves playing a long ball.

This method worked for the first few games but has failed to yield results in the last few games. Instead, the club has been branded as playing boring football. Conte has had this similar setup in almost every team he has managed and it has given him results in the long run.

A serial winner, the Italian is one of the best in the world in his trade. He has enjoyed success both in England and Italy and silenced his critics then. To put him under scrutiny for a couple of poor games after what he has helped the club achieve is simply shameful.
