Antonio Conte said: “I spoke with Daniel. I don’t like that someone tries to create a problem between me and the club because this is not the truth. Believe me, this is not the truth.
“Our chairman Daniel Levy knows very well that I am here to help the club in every moment and I will help the club until the end. This is the reality and he knows this.
“He knows that we are working very hard and he has great consideration about my job, about the job of my staff. We speak.
“I want to help the club in every aspect with my vision and my idea, and my ideas about football for improvement. I repeat, there is no problem.
“He shows me great consideration every day and for this reason, I’m much more committed for this club because I know the consideration of the club about myself is very, very high.
“The club is very happy with my work and what I am doing with my staff. I am sure the club appreciates what we are doing.
“The problem is, I am a perfectionist. When I lose I don’t stay so happy, this has helped me have success in my career.”
Antonio Conte apologizes for his outburst after losing 1-0 at Burnley
After revealing that he has had meetings with Daniel Levy, the chairman of Tottenham Hotspur, coach Antonio Conte apologized for his outburst after the 1-0 defeat at Burnley. Recall that Conte questioned his future at Tottenham after the unexpected defeat.
The 52-year-old Italian coach said he is always emotional whenever he record a defeat, adding that he hates to lose games.
Conte said: “For sure when I lose a game I am not the person to go and have dinner. I think that I am not the right person, when I lose a game my mood is very bad and I prefer to stay alone and live the defeat, to stay alone and metabolize the defeat.
“I need one day to recover at least. This is me. It is me. I don’t like to lose. If you ask me what I hate in life it is to lose games.
“My mentality is to prepare myself, to prepare the players, and to avoid this type of situation. Many coaches don’t suffer. I wanted to be a little soft but at the same time to be this way makes me a person that in (my) career I won as a player and then as a coach.
“For sure when I lose, if you expect that I am happy or to come to a press conference and laugh, I am not this person. I am sorry if I show my disappointment because maybe it would be good to keep this inside and not show my emotion.
“I am an honest person, it is difficult for me to lie or hide the truth.”
