Conte revives Spurs hopes

Tottenham Hotspur captain Hugo Lloris said on Wednesday the players had a great opportunity to work under new manager Antonio Conte. The arrival of the Italian coach means even more expectations at the club.

Conte, who has previously coached Juventus, Chelsea and Inter Milan as well as Italy, has been appointed to replace Nuno Espirito Santo after the Portuguese sacked due to a negative trend in 17 games.

“He (Antonio Conte) is very ambitious and believes in all the players in the dressing room. It’s a great opportunity to work under one of the greatest managers in recent years.”

Conte took over as Spurs were ninth in the Premier League with 15 points after 10 games, 10 adrift from leaders Chelsea. “Now is not the time for words. Now is the time for work,” Lloris insisted.

“It’s time to believe in ourselves again, in our team and in our club Tottenham, with Antonio Conte there will be more hope. But again, no matter what people say to the The most important thing is what happens inside in the dressing room, in the building. There is ambition at the club. We also want to meet the expectations of the supporters. It is important, “said Lloris.

Conte’s first challenge as Tottenham coach is Thursday’s home game against the Dutch team of Vitesse in the European Conference League. (OL-8)
