Antonio Conte spotted going absolutely crazy at one Spurs player in the 67th minute against Burnley

Tottenham might have won out 1-0 against Burnley today but it’s safe to say that Antonio Conte didn’t like some of what he saw on offer.

A goal from Harry Kane – a controversial penalty at the end of the first half – ensured Tottenham took things at least to the final game of the season when it comes to finishing in the top four. Kane’s goal from the spot was probably deserved, in fairness to Spurs. Burnley goalkeeper Nick Pope pulled off a number of good saves, despite Kane’s penalty being a fortunate one to be given.

However, there was plenty on display today that didn’t go down too well with Spurs boss Conte.

One of those moments came in the 67th minute and it was defender, Davinson Sanchez, who felt the wrath of the Italian coach. With Spurs building in the midfield, the ball approached Conte’s side of the pitch. The Spurs boss was barking instructions throughout the move but Sanches felt the brunt of it.

Sanchez was seen out of picture at first before Conte stormed to the edge of his technical area to berate the defender for not moving into position to receive the ball. Indeed, the BT Sport commentating team picked up on it at the time as well.

TBR’s View: Conte Telling Davinson Sanchez Against Burnley Shows His Demands

Conte is at it all game, isn’t he? As soon as any Spurs player switches off, he’s right on them barking instructions at them.

To be fair to Conte, he is a winner. He’s won all around the world so he has high demands of his team and if they don’t want to listen, then they’ll only end up going one way.

Sanchez felt the full force today for sure. The Colombian did have a decent enough game in fairness, but decent is never good enough for Conte.
