Antonio Conte claims Tottenham 'weakened' squad despite 2 signings in January

Quoted by Sky Italia, Antonio Conte said: "It is always difficult to make comparisons, but surely when you take the job in a team that hasn't won for a long time it is inevitable that you will lack confidence.

"I glimpsed situations that could have developed, then when you enter the situation you understand that something... what happened in January is not easy."

The Tottenham Hotspur boss continued: "Four players left in January. 

"Four important players for Tottenham, two have arrived. 

"So even numerically instead of strengthening yourself you may have, on paper, weakened. 

"[Rodrigo] Bentancur and [Dejan] Kulusevski are the ideal prospect for Tottenham. Because Tottenham is looking for young players, players to be developed, not ready players."

Losing four key players can be tough but Conte should still count his blessings.

Manchester United refrained from signing anyone in the January window despite having gaps in the squad to fill.

The Red Devils were linked with Conte shortly before he joined Spurs and it looks like he's already regretting it.
