‘I’m not a magician,’ Tottenham manager Antonio Conte said of the humbling setback.

On Thursday evening, Tottenham drew with Slovenian minnows NS Mura in a poor match.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has delivered a pessimistic appraisal of his team’s 2-1 loss to Slovenian minnows NS Mura on Thursday evening. Spurs’ UEFA Europa Conference League campaign hit a new low after being reduced to ten men in the first half. The home team scored with the game’s final kick.

Tomi Horvat left Davinson Sanchez for dead before curling in a stunning goal to give Tottenham a bad start in Slovenia.

Just after the half-hour mark, Ryan Sessegnon, who has spent the majority of his time with Spurs on the bench, received his second yellow card.

From there, it was an uphill climb, and despite Harry Kane’s brilliant chip bringing the game back to 2-2, the home side went crazy after netting in the dying embers.

Conte’s first game in charge ended in defeat to NS Mura, and his post-match analysis offered a bleak image of his time at the club.

In an Instagram post, Eric Cantona declares himself “the new manager of Manchester United.”

“After three weeks, I’m starting to have a sense of what’s going on. It is not easy “Conte confessed.

“At the moment, Tottenham’s level is not that high. I’m glad to be back, but we still have a long way to go in terms of improving the squad’s quality.

“But I’m not a magician, and after three weeks, I’ve identified players that want to work and are dedicated, but it’s not always enough.

“We are Tottenham Hotspur, but there is a significant difference between us and the best teams. But I’m not afraid.” If Antonio Conte signs Eric Bailly and two other players in January, Tottenham’s XI will be even more remarkable.

[OPINION] While Tottenham had avoided defeat in Conte’s first three games in charge, they had yet to completely dominate an opponent.

Many expected that performance to come against overmatched opposition on Thursday, but NS Mura fought with the Lilywhites the entire game, even with talisman Harry Kane up top.

“Brinkwire Summary News” reports that Sessegnon may be forced to quit Spurs’ European away trip.
