Antonio Conte clarifies early snubs in Spurs’. A few days before England kicks off their 2022 World Cup campaign, Tottenham manager Antoniohas acknowledged that Harry Kane is experiencing “fatigue.” Wednesday’s 2-0 Carabao Cup third-round loss at Nottingham Forest marked the striker’s 21st consecutive start for the north London club in all competitions. He was replaced just before the hour mark. Kane, who will lead his nation in Qatar, has no known injuries, according to Conte, who does acknowledge that the 29-year-old is a little tired.
With Gareth Southgate ready to announce his 26-man England squad on Thursday, Conte was asked to explain why he decided to substitute Kane at the City Ground. He stated that it was a fatigue issue. Despite being only tired, Harry played every game, thus this is expected. He paused once throughout our gentle training session yesterday to regain energy. Maybe some of the other players may say, “I’m tired and don’t want to play and help the squad.” Because they have to play in the World Cup in one week, another person can be egotistical and act independently. Instead, Harry Kane proved to be a very admirable individual. However, as I said before, what is happening at this time is natural.
When England begins their next quest for world dominance against Iran on November 21, they will be counting on Kane to be at full strength. Kane has scored 51 goals for the Three Lions in 75 appearances, making him a talismanic presence in their ranks. Before the World Cup break, Tottenham has one more match to watch: a Premier League home match against Leeds on Saturday. Tottenham will be trying to bounce back after consecutive losses to Liverpool and Forest.
