“Tactically, physically and mentally”- Conte highlights the changes he wants from his players

Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte calls for all round improvement from his players

In his pre-match conference for the match vs Leeds United (h/t The Sun), Tottenham Hotspur manager Antonio Conte speaks about improving his players in different aspects of the game.

The Italian manager has brought along with himself a renewed sense of enthusiasm at the club. He comes with a largely impressive resume and his latest role in helping Inter Milan win the Serie A after a span of 11 years is a testimony of his skills.

The 52-year-old manager did not have the luxury of a pre-season with the Lilywhites as he took over at the start of the month. To top it all he even lost Cristian Romero who has been a key figure in their backline recently. The suspension of Oliver Skipp would only give the former Chelsea manager a bigger headache.

The Italian spoke about his situation at the club and how they would try and develop into a better team on the field:

“When you arrive at a new club you try to focus on the situations you think are the most important. In this moment, the situation we have to improve is on the pitch – tactically, physically, and mentally. We have worked very well in these two weeks and during the international break with the players we had with us.”

The former Juventus manager has always preferred to play with a three-man defence which enables his teams to be on the front foot for most of the match. His system also demands a lot from the players both mentally and physically.

The Italian manager is still getting to know his team and trying to analyse his options with the North Londoners. With the next transfer window coming in January this could give him a rough idea of the places in which he needs to add reinforcements.

Right now, Conte will have to work with the group of players that are already present at N-17. He would be looking to get his first Premier League victory as manager of Tottenham Hotspur in their upcoming fixture against Leeds United.

While positive vibes are well and good, players must also take efforts to improve themselves. Only then can Spurs evolve as a team, regardless of who is in charge.
