Tottenham boss Antonio Conte was involved in a furious row with Southampton staff during his side’s home Premier League clash with the Saints on Wednesday night. The Italian was seen shouting and gesturing at his counterparts in the away dugout after they had protested against Spurs’ second goal. He was held back by members of his own backroom team and put his finger to his lips in an attempt to hush the visitors’ complaints.
Conte took the helm in north London last November after Nuno Espirito Santo had been given his marching orders.
And the former midfielder has helped Spurs enjoy a decent run of form.
Conte remained unbeaten in his first nine Premier League games as Tottenham boss as his side racked-up 21 points.
But Spurs were defeated 2-0 by Conte’s former side Chelsea before the winter break.
Tottenham went into Wednesday night’s clash with Southampton as heavy favourites and took an early lead as Southampton defender Jan Bednarek turned the ball into his own net.
