Antonio Conte has stated that his side can not qualify for Champions League with current form.

Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte has stated that Champions League qualification is impossible with current form.

The London club lost 2-0 to Wolves in the premier league yesterday and the hopes of qualifying for the champions league is down.

Tottenham have suffered defeat to Chelsea, Southampton and now Wolves, as Spurs are now five points off fourth-placed West Ham – although they do have three games in hand on the Hammers.

The former Inter Milan manager Conte has now lost three league games in a row for the first time since 2009 when manager of Atalanta, spelt out just how far his side are from challenging at the top end of the Premier League.

“When you lose two games at home and against Chelsea – for a team that want to qualify for the Champions League, it’s impossible to happen,” Conte told Sky Sports.

“We know we have to fight to build something important with the situation but it’s important to know the situation.

“Maybe our fans shouldn’t be disappointed with the defeat – instead they should try and push us and stay behind us. The players need to find the right atmosphere and feel no pressure about a target that in this moment you can’t reach. I’ve been saying this since my arrival.”

Conte added in his press conference: “We need to be realistic and together. Also with our fans. The fans need to understand to have patience, to wait to rebuild again to a situation they were used to in the past. Now the situation has changed, not only with me but with the other coaches.

“We are working hard with the players and there is great commitment but it’s not enough if we want to be competitive. We have to wait. Step-by-step. And it’s important to be realistic and very clear.”
