Tottenham boss Conte: Top four has happened thanks to January market

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte says their top four push gained momentum after a successful January market.

Even as late as February a top-four push seemed unlikely, but - with the help of January additions Dejan Kulusevski and Rodrigo Bentancur and the sizzling form of Son Heung-min and Harry Kane - Conte has turned things around.

And he thanked the club for their support in the January transfer window, which also saw a number of under-performers shipped out.

“We have to be proud, but I also want to say thanks to the club because in January it's not simple to listen 100 per cent to your manager and for this reason I want to say thanks," he said.

“The club believed in what I said, in the situation we have to try to improve - not many things but the right things and I think we did this.

“But I know very well that it's not simple for the club to make the coach happy - it's very, very difficult!

“It was the right case and now to repay the trust of the club, the trust of the players, the trust of fans, makes me happy. But there is the last step to be very, very happy."
