Former Italian forward opines that Antonio Conte has a ‘very difficult’ job at Tottenham Hotspur

In conversation with Calciomercato (h/t Football.London), Former Italian forward Emanuele Giaccherini highlights that Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte has a tough job ahead of him.

The 36-year-old Italian has worked with the former Inter Milan manager at Juventus from 2011 to 2013. Conte has taken over Spurs in the middle of the season after Nuno Espirito Santo had a rocky start with the North London club.

The Lilywhites adopted a cautious approach under the Portuguese manager whereas the former Chelsea manager is already trying to instil his brand of dynamic football at N17. The North Londoners have struggled with consistency in recent weeks and the Italian manager would be looking to change things in that department.

Giaccherini spoke about Antonio Conte and Tottenham Hotspur. He highlighted that it would be a really tough challenge with the cut-throat competition in the Premier League:

“He doesn’t leave anything to chance, I’m happy for him because Tottenham is a great club, but it’s a challenge because there are three or four superior teams. It’s a very exciting challenge, he does it for his own growth, but surely Spurs have promised him something regarding the January market…”

“Also, with a new market to be set up from the beginning, but at the moment, I see it as a very difficult challenge, maybe the most difficult of his career.”

Conte prefers to play with a back three, which allows the team to play on the front foot. This could see the full-backs Sergio Reguilon and Emerson Royal take up more advanced roles as compared to their time under Nuno.

This system also demands a lot from his players but the Italian manager does not have the luxury of a pre-season to ingrain his philosophy into the club. That being said the supporters would certainly be yearning to see some creative attacking footballers.

This could also be a great chance for the fringe players like Dele Alli, Harry Winks, etc to prove their worth to a new manager and claw their way into the starting 11 once again. Conte has achieved immense success with clubs across Europe and the Lilywhites supporters would be hoping that he can recreate that magic at N-17.

It won’t be an easy task with all the turmoil around the club recently as highlighted by the 36-year-old former Italian professional footballer.
