Jamie Carragher defends Antonio Conte and tells Spurs fans to blame Daniel Levy
Jamie Carragher has urged Tottenham fans to lay off Antonio Conte and direct their anger at chairman Daniel Levy for the club's misgivings this season.
Spurs fell victim to a 2-1 defeat at the hands on Liverpool on Sunday afternoon, and the club's fans voiced their frustration with the team during the Premier League clash. Conte wasn't pleased with the jeers from the White Hart Lane faithful and hinted that he could well leave North London at the end of the season.
But he also reminded fans that Spurs are in much better shape since he's arrived, qualifying for the Champions League last season, and finishing top of their group in the competition after their heroics against Marseille last week as Conte sat in the stands following his touchline suspension. Tottenham also sit in fourth despite their loss to Liverpool, just a point behind Newcastle who they lost to a few weeks ago.

And Carragher reckons Conte deserves some praise for the reasons stated above that he's managed to pull off although the Lilywhites are in dire need of defensive reinforcements and a new keeper.
Which is why the football pundit believes any blame should be placed squarely on Levy's shoulders, for failing to provide Conte with the resources he needs.
Carragher tweeted: "Antonio Conte won’t change, he has had great success in his career with his system/tactics. You know what you’re getting before he comes, so blame Levy if you’re not happy.

"Got Spurs top 4, last 16CL & in the top 4 right now. Defenders & keeper are not at the level he needs."
But Spurs legend Rafael van der Vaart reckons Conte's side only need one new signing to win the league, and that's Chelsea ace Hakim Ziyech.
Chelsea will unlikely stand in Ziyech's way if Levy's willing to splash the cash as the winger's failed to land a regular spot in the West Londoner's starting 11 since joining from Ajax in 2020.
