Antonio Conte guided Inter Milan to title success last season and immediately left the San Siro back in May. He has returned to management after Tottenham Hotspur confirmed his appointment last week.
On November 2nd, Spurs appointed Conte as their new manager, a day after they sacked Nuno Espírito Santo.
In his last three jobs at club level, the 52-year-old has won multiple domestic titles and he now hopes to continue that run with the north London side. To do that, he has a clear plan and vision for Spurs.
The former Chelsea manager’s arrival at Tottenham has given an extra energy to the current crop of players at the club. One of those, Pierre-Emile Højbjerg, is extremely happy to be playing under Conte’s orders.
“These are positive times, in relation to the fact that we have a coach who has some very clear motives and some very clear goals,” Højbjerg told Denmark’s TV3+, as relayed by Ekstra Bladet.
“A very clear way of doing things, both on and off the field. And as a player, it is something that is very motivating and refreshing.”
The Denmark international’s compatriots, Christian Eriksen and Andreas Christensen, have already played under Conte at Inter and Chelsea respectively. The midfielder has already received insights about the manager from the two players.
“I think the whole world [knew him] did, but of course, not personally. But I have talked to Christian Eriksen about him, in relation to the fact that he had him at Inter. I even played against his team when he was in the Premier League with Chelsea,” Højbjerg explained.
“AC [Andreas Christensen] also had him, so in this way you can deal with people who have been around him.”
