Rodrigo Bentancur reveals what he ‘really likes’ about Tottenham boss Antonio Conte


Rodrigo Bentancur has been discussing Tottenham boss Antonio Conte.

Conte and co. brought Bentancur to north London during the January window, signing the midfielder on from Juventus along with Dejan Kulusevski.

And whilst Kulusevski has grabbed many of the headlines for his starring displays, including in a 3-2 win over Manchester City, Bentancur has too proven himself a solid addition.

Now, Bentancur has revealed what he really likes about Antonio Conte:

“By spending your spare time doing extra work and fitness work, it’s a positive. Ever since I have arrived I have seen that mentality that Antonio has,” he said. “That’s something that I really appreciate and I really like as well.

“He is the sort of coach who is very intense with everything and he wants his players to always give the maximum with everything, 100 per cent all the time.”


Will Bentancur retain his spot?

Bentancur has already played 11 league games for Tottenham this term, forming a decent partnership with Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg.

However, Olivier Skipp is now nearing a return to action and could feature for the Lilywhites this weekend.

This leaves Conte with a big decision to make as, given the playing style of both Skipp and Bentancur, you can only really afford to start one of them in a midfield pivot, with the remaining spot essentially nailed down by the more defensive-minded Hojbjerg.
