Antonio Conte, manager of Tottenham Hotspur has said it would be ”impossible for” the team to qualify for the Champions League next season.
Spurs endured their third straight defeat in the Premier League on Sunday, losing 2-0 to Wolves.
The aftermath saw Conte’s men drop to eighth in the table on 36 points after 22 matches.
“When you lose two games at home and against Chelsea, for a team that wants to qualify for the Champions League, it is impossible to happen.
“The players need to find the right atmosphere and feel no pressure about a target that at this moment you can’t reach. I’ve been saying this since my arrival,” Conte told Sky Sports.
Tottenham is five points behind fourth-placed West Ham United, although they have three games in hand over the Hammers.
