Andre Villas-Boas believes Antonio Conte can be the right fit for Tottenham but only if he learns how to deal with chairman Daniel Levy.

The Italian has been appointed Spurs’ new head coach on an initial 18-month deal following the sacking of Nuno Espirito Santo on Monday.

Although his appointment is a coup for the north London club, given their fall from the top of the English game, his combustible character could put him on a collision course with Levy – a notoriously hard person to work with.

Villas-Boas found out that first-hand during an 18-month stint that ended in 2013 after a fall-out involving director of football Franco Baldini.

“Coaches have to be judged on their performance, I agree. We lost, miserably, two games that led to us agreeing terms for me to leave but he’s not the easiest person to deal with. But what is easy right now in football?

“But for Antonio it will be a challenge, a great challenge.”
