Tottenham Hotspur manager, Antonio Conte, says Brentford are a tough nut to crack, reason his side was unable to beat them in the English Premier League (EPL) on Monday.
Newsbreak.ng reports that Harry Kane and Ivan Toney both scored after a difficult few weeks for the pair as Brentford and Tottenham shared the points in a dramatic 2-2 thriller to welcome back EPL football after the World Cup.
Kane led the Spurs fightback from 2-0 down in his first match since his World Cup quarter-final penalty miss for England, heading home from close range before Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg completed the comeback as Antonio Conte’s side scored twice in six minutes.
Speaking at the post-match press conference, Conte pointed out that Brentford are a difficult team who drew against Chelsea and beat Manchester City.
“For me, this is the first time in my career to concede nine games in a row. They showed great character but we have to start in this way. In our mind was so and we didn’t want that. A difficult team and they drew against Chelsea, beat City. It’s not easy to press them because they can hit it long and Toney is very good.
“I want to underline how good they are but we could have won,” the Italian tactician said.
