Antonio Conte slams the Premier League’s latest meeting over Covid cases

Antonio Conte slams the Premier League’s latest meeting over decision to play on amid rising Covid cases… with the Tottenham boss calling it a WASTE of time and like talking to a wall

Antonio Conte fumed that the Premier League’s latest meeting of its 20 clubs was a waste of time and it was akin to talking to a wall.  

It was decided that the show would go on and there would be no Christmas circuit-breaker amid a rising number of Covid cases causing multiple postponements. 

Conte, who has only just seen his Spurs side return to action following a mass outbreak, felt decisions had been made prior to the meeting and it was not worth it. 

‘When you have a wall in front of you, you can say or ask what you want,’ Conte said on Friday. ‘But every decision was [already] taken.

‘We (managers) tried to speak. Some coaches tried to speak to ask about solutions but I think everything was decided and yesterday was a wall. For this reason also, I prefer not to go into the discussion or conversation.’
