[VIDEO] Conte admits he was scared in final minutes against Eintracht
Speaking after Tottenham Hotspur’s 4-2 win over Eintracht Frankfurt in a Champions League game on Wednesday, manager Antonio Conte said the squad played well in the first half, but failed to maintain that momentum until the final whistle.
“The game finishes when the referee whistles three times,” Conte said. “In the last part of the game, everybody conceded the game ended and for this reason we made a big mistake.
“We conceded a corner they scored, then we had the opportunity to score the penalty but we missed the penalty. When we missed the penalty honestly, I was a bit scared, because I thought everything can happen.
“We are talking about a really good performance but the final part we have to take a big lesson, everybody. Myself and the players, everybody conceded the game ended.”
