Antonio Conte was happy with the spirit his Tottenham side showed right until the final whistle against Leicester City last night in the Premier League.
Despite having the better chances and controlling the game at times, Spurs were 2-1 down heading into the 95th and final minute of the match.
However, super-sub Steven Bergwijn popped up to rifle home a rebound following a Matt Doherty run into the box, before slotting a winner into the back of the net just one minute later.
Conte believes Bergwijn has a lot to offer the Spurs team due to his unique characteristics.
Check out Conte’s full interview below (BT Sport):
"Honestly, I didn't think we deserved to lose the game"
"My team showed we don't want to give up!"
Antonio Conte praises his side's fight and desire as his unbeaten run in the Premier League with Spurs extends to nine games 📈

Spurs Web Opinion:
I can’t imagine Steven Bergwijn is going anywhere. Conte seems to like him and he’s just earned himself more than enough credit for a run in the side over the next few weeks.
