‘Best signing since Gazza’ – Former Chelsea star has hailed Antonio Conte’s transfers

    Two ex-Chelsea stars have praised Antonio Conte after his impressive first game against Southampton.

    Speaking on talkSPORT, Scott Minto said Tottenham have been transformed with the arrival of the Italian, and compared the effect to that of Paul Gascoigne’s move in 1988.

    “I think he’s Spurs’ best signing, probably since Gazza. I think he’s absolutely incredible.”

    “Credit to Daniel Levy for bringing him in because without him they wouldn’t finish fourth, they wouldn’t have the amount of money they can spend, and they wouldn’t identify the players that they have got.”

    Tony Cascarino also praised the effectiveness of the Italian specialist.

    In an interview with Weekend Sports Breakfast, he said: “I think that Spurs have made the best signing of a manager for a long time because his demands are the highest level but, with that, physically, his teams will absolutely run you ragged. That is a new proposition.”
