Tottenham Hotspur: Fabrizio Romano makes Antonio Conte claim

Tottenham Hotspur: Fabrizio Romano makes Antonio Conte claim -Tottenham Hotspur Transfer Rumours

Speaking to Caught Offside, reliable reporter Fabrizio Romano has made a definitive behind-the-scenes Tottenham Hotspur claim involving manager Antonio Conte and Fabio Paratici.

The Lowdown: Conte era begins…

The serial winner arrives at Spurs with much promise as supporters aim to have optimism about the direction in which their club is heading.

It’s been two years since Mauricio Pochettino guided the Lilywhites to a Champions League final and fortunes in north London haven’t exactly continued to blossom since them.

The Argentine’s sacking was followed by the dismissals of both Jose Mourinho and Nuno Espirito Santo as a variety of managers try and fail to bring back the glory days to N17.

Can you name all of these forgotten Spurs wonderkids? This guy was once called 'the next Didier Drogba'...

Conte is the next man given this mountainous task and Fabrizio Romano has now made a definitive claim on why managing director Paratici chose him for the role.

The Latest: Romano makes Conte claim…

Speaking to Caught Offside, the Italian journalist explained that the 52-year-old was always Spurs’ number one choice for the job and went into detail regarding Paratici’s decision.

“I have no doubt in it, Antonio Conte. It’s always been Antonio Conte,” Romano explained

“The relationship is amazing, they won the title here in Italy three times in a row with Juventus, but also they have the same mentality.

“I’ve known both for a really long time and I can tell you Antonio Conte is living 24 hours a day with only football. There is family and then there is football.”

The Verdict: Right choice…

Not appointing Conte, especially given his free agent status at the time, would have been a head-scratching decision, but now as he begins his tenure, Spurs fans will see just how he can transform their club.

The former Chelsea boss has won silverware nearly everywhere he’s been so far during his managerial career but his hardest task yet will be ending Tottenham’s 13-year wait for another trophy since their League Cup final win over Chelsea in 2008.

Paratici has got the ball rolling somewhat with a few shrewd deals in the summer, like the signing of 2020/21 Serie A Best Defender MVP Cristian Romero, but the Argentine’s hamstring injury may mean Conte needs backing again in January.

The ex-Inter boss is no miracle worker and it will come down to how Tottenham help their new manager.
