"To disallow this goal in England was incredible" | Conte reflects Kane's ruled-out strike

Speaking after the game, Conte. remained bashful in reaction to Harry Kane’s disallowed goal in his side’s 2-0 defeat to Chelsea on Sunday.



Spurs boss Antonio Conte remained bashful in reaction to Harry Kane’s disallowed goal in his side’s 2-0 defeat to Chelsea on Sunday.

Strikes from Hakim Ziyech and Thiago Silva helped the Blues register a third successive win over Conte’s team in three weeks.

Chelsea have also won both legs of their Carabao Cup semi-final against the North London club in recent weeks.

However, there was controversy at Stamford Bridge in the first half.

Harry Kane looked to have scored five minutes before the break, but the referee ruled out his goal after the England striker was adjudged to have fouled Thiago in the buildup. 

Speaking after the game, Conte gave a brief hint regarding his feelings on the decision.

“You know very well that it’s difficult to comment, and I don’t want to comment [on] the referee’s decision,” Conte said.
“But, then, to disallow this goal in England was incredible for me. The referee tried to take the best decision.”

“I’m more upset about the yellow card to Tanganga, because I thought it was clinical.”

Conte: "There is a big difference between us and a top team"

Conte also gave his thoughts on suffering his first league defeat since becoming the Spurs manager in November.

“Honestly, I don’t like to lose, and to comment [on] a defeat is difficult for me.”

“But to have a nine-game run is important because we are Tottenham.”

“At this time, the gap with the other teams, especially Chelsea, is a really, really important gap.”

“I’m proud of the effort from my players. We tried to do everything, but sometimes, when you try to do everything, it’s not enough, especially when you play against a team like this.”

Conte also made a possible allusion to his unhappiness at the lack of quality within his squad.

“There are strong players both in their starting XI and on the bench.”

“I think now there is a big difference between us and a top team.”
