Premier League & Covid: Spurs Boss Conte Says Managers Meeting ‘Like Talking To A Wall’

Posted by

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte thinks the Premier League’s meeting with managers on Thursday to discuss the Covid-19 outbreak was like talking to a stone wall.

The league decided on Monday to continue playing through the holidays.

Three games on December 26 have already been rescheduled, bringing the total number of postponed games to 13, while players and club personnel returned a record 90 positive tests last week.

Conte responded, “I believe so,” when asked if the meeting was a waste of time.

“It was [like] talking to a wall yesterday,” the Italian continued, “so I prefer not to go into it.”

The Premier League has declined to comment, and BBC Sport has learned that Spurs manager Conte did not participate in any of the meeting’s discussions.
