Antonio Conte wants to close Tottenham’s troubling problem once and for all


Spurs are in talks with assistant coach Gianni Vio, whom Conte wants to see in his coaching staff.

According to football.london, Spurs are very much interested in the specialist, but a deal has not yet been concluded, and it is not clear when he will join the team.

With the arrival of Vio, Antonio Conte’s team will play with new colors. The specialist has done a very serious job at Palermo, Fiorentina and Milan. He has played an important role in Italy’s success at Euro 2020, having developed 4,830 different variations of free kicks and corner kicks.

Tottenham’s problem in recent seasons has been the execution of free kicks. Last season in the Premier League, Antonio Conte’s team missed ten free kicks while scoring only eight.

The need for a specialist is there and Antonio Conte wants to get him as soon as possible. Various regarded people of football world have spoken about him very positively, for example, the former boss of Palermo Walter Zenga.

“He isn’t just a free-kick wizard. He is like having a 15 or 20-goal striker in the team. A 20-goal-a-season player can get injured. He can get suspended. But there are set-pieces in every game. Always. And he knows how to exploit them best. He’s very skilled at it. He manages to get players scoring who otherwise wouldn’t score.”

Thus, the arrival of a specialist coach will definitely contribute to Antonio Conte’s system of play, and the team should play much better.
