It leaves Conte with only 13 wins in his managerial Champions League career, as well as 12 losses and 11 draws.

And despite the Italian winning Premier League and Serie A titles, fans called into question his form in Europe.

It made for some brutal trolling with rival fans relishing in the defeat with harsh memes.

Tottenham are currently third in the league, behind leaders Arsenal and champions Manchester City.

But Conte blasted that performing in the Champions League is a whole different story.

He said: “The Champions League level is very high.

“To play in the competition, you have to reduce the mistakes because at the end you can pay and we paid, we paid a lot. 

“Now, instead of a draw, we are talking about a loss against a team used to playing in this competition. It’s a pity.

“All of the players know the level is an important level and to play in this competition you have to continue to improve yourself. 

“I think a draw would have been more fair than a defeat, but Sporting were good to take their moment to win the game.”

Conte added: “When you lose the game you are not happy. The game was imbalanced in the second half. 

“We could not score and we tried to win the game and then in the last ten minutes we could do much better.”
