Conte v Lautaro – who do you support ?!

Antonio Conté is the new director of Tottenham Hotspur.

On Tuesday morning, the north London club officially announced the arrival of the Italian and fans are understandably excited.

The old one Chelsea the boss is a serial winner. Last season at Inter Milan, Conte guided the team to their first Serie A title in 11 years.

Wherever he goes, success usually follows and this is largely due to intense training sessions and brilliant man management skills.

Conte is never satisfied with less than 100% from the players under his command, which is going to be a bit of a wake-up call for some of the current members of the Spurs squad.

The 52-year-old isn’t doing everything by the book either, as was proven late last season after Inter got the Scudetto.

During a game against Roma in May, striker Lautaro Martinez reacted furiously to his replacement and Conte did absolutely nothing.

Words were exchanged between the two, but instead of making a big deal out of it after the match was over, the manager opted to settle the feud under some rather humorous circumstances.

A “boxing match” between Conte and Martinez was organized at Inter’s training ground, with Romelu Lukaku play the role of Michael Buffer and introduce the fighters.

Okay, how long before you see Conte and Harry kane lacing up their gloves in North London then, eh?

We would definitely be in favor of the Italian manager in that one …

One of Conte’s first tasks at Spurs will be to bring Kane back to something close to his best, as the forward has been in dismal shape – by his standards – in 2021/22 so far.

In nine Premier League games, the England captain has scored just one goal, which for him is simply unacceptable.

But if anyone can get Kane to shoot in front of goal, it’s Conte.
