Matt Doherty Reveals Painful Way Players Relax After Storytelling Session – Thick Accent
After embarking on a solid run of form at the end of last season, Tottenham Hotspur managed to break into the Top 4 under mid-season appointment Antonio Conte.
The Italian has been quite vocal during pressers about his squad’s various shortcomings, as he has publicly entrusted the owners with the responsibility of bringing him reinforcements. And for once, Daniel Levy and company. loosened their purse strings and did just that.
So far, the London outfit have bolstered their squad by bringing in Ivan Perisic, Yves Bissouma, Djed Spence and Richarlison, among others, moves that have given Spurs fans optimism.
2022/23 marks the first full season for Conte at the helm, and as such he wasted no time introducing players to his version of conditioning and fitness during pre-season.
Conte was seen knocking his players to the ground during Spurs’ trip to Seoul, an all too familiar sight for fans familiar with the Italian’s methods. Footage of a stunned Harry Kane brought to mind similar images showing the state of Chelsea players after an equally intense session under Conte.
The exercises are designed to maximize endurance, but in the moment they are obviously very strenuous.
The brief respite the players receive must be spent wisely to cool down, and the official Spurs Instagram has provided fans with a glimpse of what they do during those breaks.
In the post, team members can be seen flying kites to cool off, a rather mild remedy after an exhaustive session.
Nevertheless, Matt Doherty quickly came on the scene and declared his favorite activity to relax, commenting “Cry too”. The method may be grim, but perhaps just as effective.
Doherty’s comments highlight just how brutal Conte sessions can be, as it really can’t be worse than being reduced to tears.
Hopefully all the hard work and effort will pay off in the end. And there’s no better reward than a piece of silverware, something that’s eluded the Lilywhites for years but seems like a real possibility under Conte.
