UCL, EPL: Kane, Son told to question Conte’s tactics


 Rangers and Scotland legend, Ally McCoist, believes Tottenham forwards, Harry Kane and Son Heung-min should question their manager Antonio Conte over his tactics at the club.

According to McCoist, Conte’s tactics are not getting the best out of Kane and Son so far this season.

He spoke after Tottenham’s Champions League 0-0 draw with Eintracht Frankfurt on Tuesday, following on from their 3-1 defeat to rivals Arsenal in the Premier League last weekend.

Conte is renowned for his defensive style of play and operating with three at the back, but the system doesn’t seem to be working for Tottenham at the moment.

Speaking on BT Sport, McCoist said: “You look at a team like Spurs obviously coming off a really poor performance, a poor result in the weekend in the derby game, you are looking for a reaction.

“I think Spurs’ strengths are in the forward area of the park, I don’t think anyone can argue with that. I think defensively, there’s question marks. I thought the game they came back against Chelsea, they were a little bit more solid, is this the turning point? But I don’t think so.

“The argument I think Spurs fans can make is Conte playing to his team’s strengths? I’m not sure. He’s clearly defensively minded in the way he sets up his team and you have to say he’s very good at it. Spurs have only lost one league game this year, and that is the North London derby.

“However, if I’m a Kulusevski or a Harry Kane or Son and I’m in that Spurs team, I’m actually probably questioning the way we’re playing.”
