Former Tottenham midfielder, Jamie O’Hara slammed Antonio Conte for begging to be sacked by the club’s Chairman, Daniel Levy.
O’Hara expressed concerns over the manager’s explosive interview after Tottenham’s 3-3 draw with Southampton in the Premier League on Saturday.
Southampton came from a 3-1 down to draw 3-3 with fourth-placed Tottenham, with 15 minutes to play.
Conte slammed his boys after the game, saying they are selfish and don’t want to play under pressure.
The manager then criticised chairman Daniel Levy and owner Joe Lewis, saying that for the 20 years the club have been under their watch, Spurs never won anything.
O’Hara wondered why the former Chelsea, Inter Milan and Juventus boss is shifting all the blame away from himself.
He said: “I don’t disagree with the comments about passion, the desire to win, the mentality of the players, but it’s how he said it, where he’s said it, and the timing of it.
“I can’t get behind a manager slaughtering his team when an international break is coming up and he’s basically saying to Levy ‘I beg you to sack me’.”
