Antonio Conte (Tottenham): “Marseille are an excellent team”

Antonio Conte (Tottenham coach, after the 2-0 victory against OM on Wednesday for the first day of the Champions League) : “Olympique de Marseille is an excellent team, physically very strong, which tries to win duels everywhere on the field. In the first half, we had difficulties, especially in the duels. We only had one chance, where we kept the ball and attacked space, only to end up with a shot from Harry Kane. In the second half, we did much better in this kind of situation. Son took the space and caused the red card. The game then changed.

I also tried to create difficulties for Marseille with the changes. We pushed offensively with (Dejan) Kulusevski and (Ivan) Perisic, then we changed the central defenders with fresh players to push, with Japhet Tanganga and Ben Davies. In the end, we took the three points. It was very important for us to start this competition in the best possible way, it’s really important. »
