“Exactly what Tottenham need”: Sky Sports reporter reckons this manager is who Spurs require


Sky Sports presenter, Michael Bridge says he would jump at the chance of hiring Antonio Conte as the Tottenham manager if he was at the club.

The Italian is currently out of a job after leaving Inter Milan and Tottenham considered employing him as their manager in the summer.

The Lilywhites eventually settled for Nuno Espirito Santo, but things aren’t going exactly as the club wants.

Conte won the Premier League title with Chelsea and helped Inter Milan to end the dominance of Juventus by winning Serie A last season.

He left the Milan club shortly after the end of the season and Bridge believes he has shown in the past that he is the best man to lead a club to titles.

With Spurs still waiting for their first major trophy in more than a decade, Bridge believes Conte is guaranteed to end that wait as the Italian will tear the club down and rebuild them as a title challenger if he becomes their boss.

He told Givemesport: “For me, the best manager in the world is unemployed and that’s Antonio Conte. But we’ve seen that he would want a guarantee about funds and power.

“This is a guy that wants to come in and rip it up from top to bottom and, as a Tottenham fan, taking my journalist hat away, I would have said ‘here’s the keys, you do what the hell you like mate because you are that good’.

“He had Victor Moses at right wing-back and still won the league on 93 points. You have gone to Serie A and completely broken the mould of Juventus. You are a serial winner and exactly what Tottenham need.”
