Conte identifies one major area Tottenham must improve
Antonio Conte, the manager of Tottenham Hotspur, has stated that his team needs to be more decisive after a discouraging 0-0 draw in the UEFA Champions League on Tuesday against Frankfurt.
Harry Kane and Son Heung-min failed to take advantage of several opportunities that Tottenham created against Frankfurt in the Group D match. Tottenham had a ton of chances against Frankfurt in Germany.
Tottenham has gone seven games without a victory away from home in a European competition after the defeat of the Bundesliga team.
“The match was a good match,” Conte told BT Sport at his post-match press conference.
“I think we played a match with great intensity. We didn’t allow them to play their football and we pressed a lot in every area of the pitch.
At the same time, we have to be more clinical. We have to be more clinical because we created many, many chances to score and instead, at the end, we are talking about a draw.
“A good draw because it is not easy to play away with this atmosphere, a lot of noise around us, and I think my players coped very well with the situation." We played a good game, but we know very well that if you don’t score, you don’t win, but at least you draw, and we got one point today.
“For me, the most important thing is to create chances to score,” Conte added.
