The Italian manager has a bunch of plans to make Tottenham a competitive club for the titles. He stated his plan in a press conference earlier this week where he emphasized the need to ‘change many things to achieve the results he seeks. 

It seems he has already started his work. After beating Vitesse in the Europa Conference League last Thursday, Spurs players did a rigorous training session the following morning. It would appear they felt ‘dead’ after the session. 

The manager didn’t limit his players to extensive physical training; he also took a 75-minute video analysis session of the match despite scheduling it for 20 minutes previously.

Firstly, he has removed ‘heavy food and sandwiches’ from the canteen menu. Going a step forward, he has also banned ketchup and mayonnaise. The volume of fruit juice given to players and the measure of oil and butter in cooking has additionally been decreased
