‘Yet to be 100% ready’ – Antonio Conte demands more from new player and talks about preseason results


Spurs manager Antonio Conte expects more from Ivan Perisic. Speaking to Sky Italia, the Italian specialist said that Perisic is already close to the peak of his physical form.

“Now it is important for Perisic to get back in the best psychophysical condition, because he got hurt in the last match of last season, a serious injury, now he is back at his disposal”.

The Italian also expressed his opinion on the results of pre-season training.

“The pre-season went well, it was tiring, we had to make two long and demanding trips between Korea and Israel. But we worked hard, both from a tactical and a physical point of view.

“There were minor setbacks, but at the same time I’m happy to be able to continue working on an idea of ‘last year, without having to start all over again, as happened in November: it was very hard there, you have to bring your idea from scratch.”
