Pierre-Emil Hoivier “Conte, I should have explained more accurately to the players”
Pierre-Emil Hoivier (28, Denmark), the team’s main midfielder, expressed regret toward Tottenham Hotspur’s Antonio Conte (Italy), who has recently been embroiled in rumors of a replacement.
According to the BBC on the 22nd, Pierre-Emil Hoivier visited his home country of Denmark to have an interview with reporters to play an A match. At the meeting, Hoivier indirectly voiced criticism over Conte’s recent criticism of Tottenham players.
Conte criticized his teammates in a raw way after drawing 3-3 in the 28th round against Southampton, the lowest in the English Premier League, over the weekend.
Tottenham won 3-1, but gave up two more goals at the end of the second half and tied. At the time, coach Conte said, “The problem showed that we were not a team,” adding, “I saw selfish players.” “We didn’t try to help each other and only saw players who didn’t give their hearts,” he said bitterly.
Furthermore, he said, “Tottenham has had a owner (Daniel Levy) for 20 years, but why didn’t he get anything,” and asked back, “Is it really only the managers who were here?”
As a result, there are continuous opinions in the local community that Tottenham Chairman Levi will replace Conte. Sky Sports and others reported that the Tottenham club will conclude within 48 hours (the replacement of Conte coach).
Tottenham’s key midfielder, Hoivier, said in an interview with the head coach, “All the players saw the contents. It was a very honest and public press conference,” he said.
“It must have been because Conte was not satisfied. We wouldn’t have said that if we had reached the quarterfinals of the UEFA Champions League (UCL) and reached the semifinals of the FA Cup. Unfortunately, we didn’t get the results that everyone wanted,” he said, adding that he understood the coach’s feelings.
In addition, Pierre-Emil Hoivier said, “To succeed as a team, we need 11 dedicated players, but (Conte) was not satisfied,” adding, “I will accept it.” However, he also expressed regret from the player’s point of view.
“When I think of myself, I’m an honest player,” Pierre-Emil Hoivier said. “I’m always doing 100% for the team. “In order for the coach to engrave something in the player’s mind, he must explain it more accurately,” he refuted indirectly.
Meanwhile, fullback Matt Doherty (Ireland), who left Tottenham in January and wore Atletico Madrid (Spain) uniform, stressed that Conte is needed for the team. “Conte is an incredible manager,” Doherty said. “He wouldn’t have told the media what he wouldn’t have said to the players. He is completely honest with the players and has a passion for the club. “He’s one of the best coaches of all time,” he said. 메이저놀이터
Tottenham is currently trailing fifth-place Newcastle (47 points), who played two less games with 15 wins, 4 draws and 9 losses (49th place). Tottenham is showing poor performance, losing to AC Milan (Italy) in the round of 16 in the UCL.
Conte, who took the helm of Tottenham in November 2021, led the team to fourth place in the EPL in the 2021-22 season. However, he was criticized for his stereotyped counterattack tactics this season and was on the verge of being replaced.
