Antonio Conte threatens to quit after loss to Burnley, fans support

Spurs lost 1-0 to 18th placed Burnley

Antonio Conte

Five days ago, Tottenham fans were buzzing after they convincingly beat table-toppers Manchester City 3-2, away at Etihad stadium. Today, the same fans are reeling after Spurs lost 1-0 to relegation-threatened Burnley on Wednesday, February 23.

"No manager in the world could stop the rotten decline of this club," fans expressed in unison towards owner Daniel Levy.

Spurs fans became seriously concerned when their Italian coach – a serial winner at Chelsea, Inter Milan and Juventus – threatened to walk out on the club after just a few months in charge as he claimed: 'I am not so good to improve it.'

"I want to help the club, I work a lot, I work very hard. I am giving 20 hours a day to Tottenham and the other four hours I sleep but it is not enough. It is the right moment to make assessment. I repeat, I am really frustrated, " said Conte.

Conte has only been in charge for 22 games after he was appointed successor to Nuno Espirito Santo in November. However, he has suggested recently he is not happy with the situation he has inherited at Tottenham.

Following the loss, Tottenham fans took to social media to once again dig out long-term chairman Levy, who has overseen just one trophy in 21 years at the Spurs helm, accusing him of failing to provide another top-class manager with the appropriate funds.

One fan tweeted: 'Tottenham broke Pochettino, Mourinho, and Conte. The members of this club's board won't see heaven."

"Same Chairman. Same owners. Same players. 21 years. ONE league cup. No manager in the world could stop the rotten decline of this club. People are turning on Conte already. He’s expected to win a gunfight with a spoon," said another.

Wednesday night's result leaves them seven points behind Manchester United in fourth-place, though Spurs, who have picked up four defeats in their last five league games have two games in hand over the Red Devils.
