His methods are legendary with players stating how strict he was. Thus, his arrival of Spurs would spurn players to perform well, as his strict regime is always visible in the results that follow.

Antonio Conte brings out the menu

With the club having lavish food halls for players, creative and talented chefs provide the players with healthy food to fuel their energy. However, Conte wants a complete revamp in the system. He banned many food items like ketchup and mayonnaise while even restricting fruit juices.

Most of the ‘heavy foods’ are cut down, including sandwiches after a training session. The chefs use oil and butter to a bare minimum in their dishes. Instead, he makes players sit together to eat the flavorless dishes and enjoy each other’s company.

These methods have angered some players, but this manager is different from other famous head coaches. He is a born winner and has the ambition to bring Spurs to the top. With Harry Kane and Son, they have two important players that can end the trophy drought at the club.

However, Mauricio Pochettino is one manager who took them to the top, even finished as runners-up in the Champions League in 2019. But, his sacking came as a decision that left many fans unhappy.

The appointment of Jose Mourinho seemed to work initially, but sacking him just before an important final further angered fans. After him, Tottenham hired Nuno Espirito Santo to provide that much-needed spark, but his defensive soccer could not do the magic either. Hence, Conte’s arrival marks a significant change in the club’s history as fans are excited to see what he brings to the table.

After drawing his first Premier League game against Everton, things look bright for the Italian manager.
