Antonio Conte has been confirmed as the new manager of Tottenham Hotspur – marking his return to the Premier League after three years away.

The 52-year-old Italian is already familiar with some members of the Spurs hierarchy, having worked closely with sporting director Fabio Paratici while the pair were at Juventus .

Conte is well-versed in the rigours of the English top-flight from his time at Chelsea , where he won a Premier League title in 2017 .

The former Blues boss arrives after guiding Inter Milan to their first Serie A title for 11 years, ending nine years of Juventus dominance in the process.

Despite his overwhelming success at the San Siro Conte left the club after just two years following a dispute with the board over transfers for the following season.

Following the sacking of Conte’s long-term rival Jose Mourinho , Spurs searched for 71 days to find a replacement – coming very close to appointing Conte then, before the deal collapsed late on.

However, Spurs ensured they did not make the same mistake twice as they have finally got their man.

Conte’s appointment comes shortly after his predecessor, Nuno Espirito Santo , was sacked after just ten league games in charge.

Spurs have been in dismal form as of late and currently languish in eight having lost half of their league fixtures this term.

Of their five defeats, four have come in London derbies to Chelsea, Crystal Palace , Arsenal and West Ham respectively – coming away from those games with a 10-1 aggregate score-line.

Conte has a reputation for being a fierce disciplinarian and has previously jokingly claimed he would “prefer to kill” his players for not giving their all in training.

The former Inter boss will be tasked with getting the best out of a number of under-performing stars, while also inspiring talisman Harry Kane back into form.

Incredibly dedicated to his craft, Conte has previously discussed his coaching philosophy, explaining: “The word ‘coach’ has to encompass everything.

“You have got to be good at everything. You have got to try and excel at everything.

“To do this you have got to study and since I became a coach, for me, it has been continuous study.”
