Tottenham's new manager, Antonio Conte, has promised the fans and the board members of the club to take them to the next level in club football.
The Italian was speaking to Spurs TV on Wednesday, November 3rd, 2021, after he was announced as the replacement for Nuno Espirito Santo, who was sacked on Monday, November 1st, 2021.
The 52-year-old expressed his desire and was grateful for the opportunity that was given to him by Tottenham.
It's a great pleasure, a great honour to become the Tottenham manager. This is a great opportunity to come back to England in a club of top players. I arrive at a top club where the stadium, the training ground, is wonderful. I will work to bring Tottenham on the pitch to the same level of infrastructure.
This type of situation pushed you and increases your desire to work and to do something important for the fans of this club. I had just finished two very tough seasons, and it wasn't the right time to start another experience with Tottenham. For this reason, I tell them thanks, but I prefer to wait and enjoy time with my family. Emotionally, it was still under the last experience with Inter. I must be convinced 110 per cent because when I start, I'm involved in the situation.
Conte's first game in charge of Tottenham will be against Vitesse Arnhem in the Europa League, before traveling to play Everton in the Premier League.
