Antonio Conte praises Tottenham Hotspur for how they have remembered Gian Piero Ventrone
Ventrone worked as the fitness coach for the north London club before he passed away last week. The 61-year-old was hospitalised and placed into a coma, before passing away due to a brain haemorrhage.
Tributes immediately poured in for the late coach who was loved by the Spurs players. Nicknamed the ‘marine’, the fitness coach was known for his intense fitness regimes.
The 61-year-old worked with multiple clubs throughout his career and is best known for his time with Juventus and the Italian national team.
He was part of Marcello Lippi’s 2006 Italian team that went on to win the World Cup that year. The fitness coach joined Spurs in November 2021 and was a key part in helping Conte turn around the season for the north London club.
Now, the Italian coach has appreciated how the club remembered the late coach. In an interview with Sky Sports, as quoted by Fabrizio Romano, Conte said he was proud of how Spurs paid their respects.
“I have really appreciated how Tottenham have remembered Gian Piero Ventrone, it was special from the club. I’ve been here with my staff just for 10 months… we can be proud”
