Tottenham manager Antonio Conte believes it is not solely his responsibility to explain the club’s situation and that other figures should be held accountable for the team’s poor form.
Spurs were defeated 2-0 by league leaders Arsenal on Sunday, and they have now lost five of their previous nine league games.
They are now fifth in the table and will face Manchester City on Thursday.
“I think there’s a bad habit in England where only the coach talks and explains,” Conte said.
“I’ve never seen anyone from the medical department come here to explain. I’ve never seen the club or the sporting director come here to explain the club’s strategy or vision.
“In Italy, before every game, a club representative goes to speak to the media.
“I believe it could be much better for us; otherwise, there is only one face to explain the situation, which I believe is better explained by the club.”
“I think it could be beneficial for the club to be present in the media,” the Italian added.
“Not every week, but at least once every 15 days or once a month. I believe it could be more simple for you to understand; otherwise, it may appear as if something is a criticism or negative when it is not.”
Spurs have only taken 10 points in the last 27 games and are five points behind Newcastle United in third place and Manchester United, who have a game in hand.
“If there is criticism, we must accept [it], but it is difficult to understand because we are doing everything we can in this situation,” Conte said.
The term “team” refers to a group of people who work together to achieve a common goal.
