Tottenham boss Conte blasts Nagelsmann: Why do that?

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte has blasted Bayern Munich coach Julian Nagelsmann for raising the prospect of signing Harry Kane.

Nagelsmann discussed signing Kane yesterday as Bayern consider the England captain as a replacement for new Barcelona signing Robert Lewandowski.

In the wake of Saturday’s 2-1 friendly win over Rangers at Ibrox, in which Kane scored twice in the second half, Conte expressed his distaste for rival managers talking about rival players.

“Honestly, I did not hear this,” said the Italian of Nagelsmann’s remarks. “For sure, I am a coach that does not speak about other players at other teams.

“I don’t know why. The situation with Tottenham is very clear. The plan is very clear with the club. He [Kane] is a part of the project, an important part of the project.

“At the same time, I don’t like to speak about the players of other clubs.

“If I want to do something, I’ll go and speak with the club and not go through the media. Maybe it is a little disrespectful for the other club. This is my way of dealing with the situation with other players.”
