- Manager talks coping strategies after Manchester United loss
- Conte adopts patient approach without more experienced stars
Antonio Conte wants his Tottenham players to use the dark arts to manage periods of suffering during matches. The manager, who is preparing for Sunday’s home game against Newcastle, has had time to reflect on Wednesday’s sobering 2-0 defeat at Manchester United.
Conte did not feel that the first half was as negative as he initially thought but he lamented how his team could not react after United went ahead through Fred in the 47th minute. He talked about poor decision-making in possession, loose passes and “stupid” turnovers, influenced in part by the pressure of the occasion, which he said they had to handle better.
