Gary Cahill has explained what training will be like for Tottenham Hotspur players under their new manager Antonio Conte.
The new Spurs boss took charge of his first game last night and it was a crazy yet successful one. Tottenham won 3-2 and the Italian era in North London is well and truly underway.
Cahill worked under Conte at Chelsea a few years ago. They won the Premier League together and the defender knows exactly what the Italian is like on the touchline, in the dressing room and on the training pitch.
Here’s what he said when asked about his former boss…
Asked what Conte is like in the dressing room and on the training pitch, Cahill told Sky Sports: “He is exactly the same as you see in the dugout, exactly the same.
“He’s very intense. Expects a lot in training, demands a lot from everybody around the training ground, from the players. He’s very driven. The reflection is what you see on the side of the pitch is the way that he is in training and is the way he is in the dressing room.
“The guy’s successful. You just have to look at his record – when he was in Italy, what he’s done there, when he came to Chelsea, what he did there. It’s a very good appointment by them (Spurs).”
