Antonio Conte does not take off. Furious after Tottenham’s draw against Sporting on Wednesday in the Champions League (1-1) and a goal denied to Harry Kane after the intervention of VAR in added time, the Spurs coach stuck to his guns this Friday in press conference. ” I confirm, I repeat, this decision was really bad. I keep thinking it’s impossible to make mistakes with VAR “he said in particular.
The Italian coach also regretted the time taken by the main referee to make his decision: Staying five or six minutes already shows that there is confusion in your mind. It’s incredible. ” Conte even had to restrain himself when talking about the honesty of the referees: ” Honesty, that’s all I ask. But making mistakes with VAR means you’re really… I don’t want to say what I think. »

This disallowed goal thus prevents Tottenham from being officially qualified for the knockout stages of the Champions League. The Spurs will play a final decisive match against OM on Tuesday at the Orange Vélodrome (9 p.m.).
