“Invest a lot of money”- Antonio Conte sends blunt transfer message to Tottenham Hotspur board

Antonio Conte urges Tottenham Hotspur to continue spending to stay competitive

According to The Telegraph (Subscription Required), Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has urged the club to keep up their transfer outlays in order to compete with the best teams in the world.

Liverpool’s struggles this season has opened up a spot on the hierarchy for a club to challenge Manchester City for domestic dominance. Arsenal have emerged as the early trendsetters with Tottenham not very far behind.

Spurs have been boosted not just by Conte’s tactical brilliance but also by the generous budget made available for him in the summer by Daniel Levy. The Spurs boss has hinted that it will have to be a regular approach in order for Tottenham to keep up with the top teams.

“If you want to go to another level and be competitive, especially in England, to win in England, you need to invest, not only to invest but to invest a lot of money.”

Conte is well aware of the pitfalls of splurging without an end game in mind. He has also cautioned against spending money for the sake of it and has asked the club to outline what they are seeking to achieve.

“To be honest with the fans, to be honest about the ambition, not to tell lies or to promise. And this is the right way for every club. Because honesty will pay always, always.”

Conte in particular was effusive in his praise for Liverpool, who have challenged Manchester City to the wire the last few seasons. If anything, Pep Guardiola’s side have often faltered against the Merseysiders who admittedly single-handedly kept the competition from becoming another farmers league.

With the Reds now set for a rebuild, there is every chance they could come back stronger. The same can be said of Newcastle United and their endless billions while Arsenal and Chelsea will also improve. It is fair to say that Conte is right when he is talking about the level of competition in England.

While spending oodles of cash is well and good, Liverpool have also matched it with excellent recruitment and tactical brilliance. Klopp deserves great credit for having players like James Milner, Jordan Henderson, Andy Robertson among others perform much above their stations.

While Conte has certainly improved us, questions need to be asked as to how well he can get the best out of average players. At times, managers have to work with what they have and Liverpool have shown it is possible. Conte too has to do his bit and not blame everything on the lack of resources.
