Antonio Conte has stated that qualifying for the Champions League is an impossible Challenge for Spurs.

Tottenham suffered their third consecutive 0-2 defeat at the hands of Wolverhampton Wanderers. Tottenham currently sits in eighth place in the league table, with 36 points from 22 games. Spurs was unbeaten in nine league games after Antonio Conte took over in November.

“When you lose two games at home and against Chelsea, for a team that wants to qualify for the Champions League”, it’s impossible to happen,” Conte told Sky Sports on Sunday.

“We know we have to fight to build something important with the situation but it’s important to know the situation. Maybe our fans shouldn’t be disappointed with the defeat, instead, they should try and push us and stay behind us.”

“The players need to find the right atmosphere and feel no pressure about a target that in this moment you can’t reach. I’ve been saying this since my arrival.”

Conte’s loss to the Wolves was the first time he had lost three league games in a row since his days managing Atalanta in 2009.
