Antonio Conte has signed an 18-month deal at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, replacing Nuno Espirito Santo who was sacked on Monday; Conte took charge of his first Spurs training session on Tuesday; “My coaching philosophy is very simple – to play good and attractive football for our fans”
Antonio Conte has vowed to bring consistency to Tottenham by playing “attractive” football and says it is an “honour” to be the club’s new head coach.
Conte has signed an 18-month contract – with an option to extend – and replaces Nuno Espirito Santo following successful talks with Tottenham’s hierarchy in London on Monday.
The 52-year-old, who guided Chelsea to the 2016-17 Premier League title and the FA Cup the following season, has taken up his first managerial post since leaving Inter Milan and took charge of his first Spurs training session on Tuesday afternoon at Hotspur Way.
In his first interview since being appointed, Conte told Spurs TV: “My coaching philosophy is very simple – to play good and attractive football for our fans. To have a stable team, not up and down.
“I think the fans deserve to have a competitive team with a will to fight. I will do everything to deserve their support. This type of situation pushes you and increases the desire to work and to do something important for the fans of this club.
“This is a great opportunity, an honour to become the manager.”
