Intense Tottenham training, ruthless decisions
Antonio Conte was appointed as the new Tottenham head coach on Tuesday after Nuno Espirito Santo was relieved of his duties on Monday morning, following a 3-0 defeat to Manchester United.
Spurs have won five and lost five of their opening ten Premier League games this season, with four of the defeats being in London derbies which lacked energy and passion.
The Italian has signed an 18-month contract and explained his excitement about his move to north London.
“I am extremely happy to return to coaching, and to do so at a Premier League club that has the ambition to be a protagonist again,” he said in the club’s official statement.
“I can’t wait to start working to convey to the team and the fans the passion, mentality and determination that have always distinguished me, as a player and as a coach.
The 52-year-old’s first two fixtures are against Vitesse in the Europa Conference League and Everton in the Premier League on Sunday, which both come before the third international break of the season.
