Report: 'Superstar’ Tottenham Hotspur man is nowhere near Conte's first-team, his summer move was blocked
Conte spoke about the rotation necessary in Tottenham’s attack.
He’s also now got even more fixture congestion to deal with in the future after their match against Manchester City was postponed.
Conte said: “For this reason, all the players have to accept the rotation especially up front, we have four players.
“For me especially it’s very difficult right now to drop one of these four players.
“I have to make the best decision for the team, also for the players.
Conte’s quotes will come as little surprise, but may have been hard to hear for one Spurs player.
Gil nowhere near Tottenham first team
This is a bitter blow for Gil, who was desperate to return to Valencia this summer.
The 21-year-old had a promising spell at the Mestalla last season, and would have benefited from more first-team minutes.
Antonio Conte personally blocked his move away, with Tottenham unable to sign a replacement.
However, Gil has yet to play a minute of football for Spurs so far this season.
Even in their 4-1 drubbing of Southampton, the winger wasn’t able to make a cameo.
It seems as if Gil is nowhere near the first team right now, and as Gold says this will certainly ‘frustrate’ the Spaniard.
