Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has refused to set a deadline for ending the north London club's trophy drought, insisting that titles are the "goal."

Spurs' trip to Slovenia on Thursday to face NS Mura in Europe's new third-tier Conference League may give the best chance of ending a trophy drought that dates back to a 2008 English League Cup success.

However, Conte, who led London rivals Chelsea to the Premier League title in 2016/17 and the FA Cup in 2018, is fully aware of the magnitude of the task.'

"I know this is not simple, I am honest to understand this, but we want to try and build something important and try and lift trophies together, this must be our target," he told a pre-match press conference on Wednesday.

"To build something ready to fight, in England it is not easy because the other teams are very, very strong but I know that through the work we can improve a lot.

"If you ask me how much time we need before it happens, it is very difficult to tell you this. In our heart and mind, this must be our inspiration and we are to try to do this for the best of the club."
