Antonio Conte has revealed that he wants to organise a warm-weather training camp for the Tottenham players who will not be at the World Cup.

With the World Cup in Qatar set to kick off next month, there will be a month and a half break following Tottenham’s clash against Leeds United on November 12, with the Lilywhites resuming their campaign with a clash against Brentford on 26 December.

Based on the Tottenham players who were called up to their national teams during last month’s international break, 11 of their players are expected to travel with their respective national teams to Qatar, excluding the players who are out on loan.

Conte has now explained that he will give a couple of weeks off to the rest of the squad before ideally talking them to warm weather training camp.

However, the 53-year-old admitted that it is unclear yet if it would be possible to train away from London during the mid-season break.

When asked for his plans when the World Cup is on, the Spurs head coach told Football.London: “I gave my idea to the club. For sure I think every team will go to have a bit of rest 10 days, two week, every team and then you need to make the best solution.

“Then I would like to go to a place where the temperature is good, to stay there and have good training sessions and wait for the players to come back from the World Cup, but at the same time you have to understand if the club can help me to do it or we have to stay in London but for sure I gave them my idea.”

I expect plenty of teams in Europe’s top flight to organise warm weather training camps in places like Dubai. That will likely be the case with Tottenham as well as Conte and his coaching staff will want the players to be at peak fitness when they resume the campaign.
