It’s been cool with Tottenham Hotspur since the appointment of Antonio Conte when they rose to the top of the Premier League and impressed in their last PL game.
However, things got heated for the North London side, as they were hit by the COVID-19 outbreak which left six players and two coaching staff believed to have tested positive.
The pace has tapered off at Conte and this is not a good move for them as they have important games ahead of them, first in the Europa League against Rennes, then in the Premier League against Brighton, Leicester, Liverpool and then in the fourth final against West Ham. of the Carabao Cup.
Meanwhile, it would be wise for Conte to give his big players a break in the Conference League as they don’t care, regardless of their cutlery hunt.
Anyone who tests positive for COVID-19 is required to self-isolate for 10 days as per government guidelines and this effectively excludes affected players from Spurs’ next three games and that would be a huge blow to a country starting to get into their rhythm under a new manager.
It is noteworthy that two Spurs players returned false positives after their return from the national team. Meanwhile, Spurs’ League clash against Rennes is indisputable as UEFA guidelines state that teams must have less than 13 players or no goalkeepers registered for the match to be questioned.
