Ex-Spurs boss Sherwood: Conte interview doesn't look good, it's not a good look

Former Tottenham boss Tim Sherwood says fans will be concerned by manager Antonio Conte's comments after defeat at Burnley.

A 71st minute goal from Ben Mee handed Spurs their fourth defeat in five games, sending them crashing back down to earth after their dramatic 3-2 win over Manchester City at the weekend.

In his post-match interview, Conte raised questions about his future after stating that he needed to speak to the club and that he is "too honest to continue this way" and take his salary.

Reacting to the Italian's explosive comments, Sherwood told Premier League Productions: "It doesn't look good, it's not a good look.

"He was almost resigning. It sounded like that. He obviously wants to have discussions with Daniel Levy and the board.

"It's not good enough, losing four out of five games and the game they won was against a team nobody could beat. It was a fantastic performance, but it's about getting consistency.

"We laugh about it, but can you go there on Wednesday night when it's cold at Burnley and win? Roll your sleeves up and dig it out, top teams do. They never looked like they were going to win. Burnley looked like they were going to win."
