Ryan Mason offers verdict on Tottenham boss Antonio Conte

Ryan Mason offers verdict on Tottenham boss Antonio Conte

Conte takes charge of Tottenham

Antonio Conte would, of course, take up the reins at Tottenham recently, following the sacking of Nuno Espirito Santo earlier this month.

Spurs’ first clash under the Italian would see them pick up a 3-2 win over Vitesse in the Europa Conference League.

This would then be followed by the Lilywhites drawing 0-0 with Everton in the Premier League during the final weekend before the current international break.

And though things have not been that impressive so far, there is no doubting Conte is a top manager.

The Italian joined Spurs boasting a very impressive pedigree which includes four Serie A titles with two clubs and, of course, the Premier League which he won with Chelsea.

As a result, if backed correctly by the higher-ups at Spurs, Conte should be able to turn Tottenham into a top-four chasing side once again and potentially end their trophy drought, which dates back to 2008.

Ryan Mason on Antonio Conte

Now, Ryan Mason has been speaking about the Italian.

Mason would, of course, take charge of Spurs towards the end of 2020/21 when Jose Mourinho was sacked.

The Englishman would then return to his role in Tottenham’s academy when Nuno Espirito Santo was brought in.

However, Mason is now one of Conte’s six coaches at Spurs. And, after spending some time with his new boss, Mason has offered his verdict on Conte, who he says is one of the best managers in the world:

“I’m delighted and very excited to join the team under the boss and also the staff that he’s brought along. It’s an exciting chapter for the football club, we’ll be looking to work hard, improve and get some positive results in the short term, but also in the long term as well.

“I spoke to the boss on the Tuesday after the first training session, we spoke a bit about joining the team and becoming part of the coaching staff and it’s something I’m really excited about.

“He’s one of the best managers in the world – his record speaks for itself. It’s a massive opportunity for me, and a massive opportunity for the football club to have the boss here coaching and helping the team.”
