EPL: Stop making excuses – Conte hits back at Klopp

Tottenham Hotspur manager, Antonio Conte, has told his Liverpool counterpart Jurgen Klopp to learn how to handle his emotions better.

Conte accused Klopp of seeking an “alibi” by criticising Spurs’ style after a 1-1 draw at Anfield.

The result was a major blow to the Reds’ hopes of beating Manchester City to the Premier League title.

Klopp, speaking after the game, said “I don’t like this kind of football” when referring to Spurs’ counter-attacking approach.

He, however, apologized on Monday for his comments, claiming it was “wrong”.

But Conte, speaking to the media on Tuesday, said: “I think Klopp understood that he gained one point, not lost two points.

“At the same time, I think Jurgen is an intelligent person, he was a bit frustrated after the game. But at the same time, for a top coach, it is important to learn that after the game, be focused on your team, not on your opponent.

“If you focus on your opponent, it means you want to find an excuse or an alibi because your job did not [go] well or something was wrong.”
