The Italian wants to win Tottenham’s first league gold since 1961. After the first game, he asked for time.
Antonio Conte’s debut for Tottenham was eventful. After five goals and three red cards between the two teams, Tottenham finally managed to score three new points in the European Conference League after an important victory over Dutch side Vitesse.
Conte set up a familiar style of play to 3-4-3, going 3-0 even half an hour before play at Tottenham Hotspur. Although the home team let Vitesse into the match with two setbacks before the break, the second half ended without goals.
“In my opinion, there is a lot of room for improvement in this team, and in every player,” Conte told BT Sport after the match.

At ESPN’s post-match studio, former Liverpool player Don Hutchison has made no secret of what he thinks about the team’s debut under Conte.
The midfield and defense were tough. It doesn’t surprise me if Conte looks towards Inter and tries to bring in Alessandro Bastoni, Stéphane de Vriy or Milan Skriniar.
Hutchinson believes the vision of attacking trio Heung-Min Son, Lucas Moura and Harry Kane, as well as wing-backs Emerson and Sergio Reguilon, has been very positive.
They have a lot of quality at the top, but a little creativity in their midfield with ball winners Pierre-Emile Hojberg and Oliver Skipp. Defensively, they lack confidence and creativity.
– the best in the world
After the match, the worthy coach was asked at the press conference about the great potential of this Tottenham team. Conte has not spared superlatives.
– This club has great potential. I was so excited when I saw the stadium and the gym, they were probably the best in the world. Here I can work the way I like. This is a high-ranking club.
The Italian stated that he has a lot of work to do if they want to improve, and that it will take time before he gets to know the players so he can shape the team in his own way.
– We need time. In that case, said Conte, we need patience, and I know I must be patient.
On Sunday, weak Everton awaits away Conte and Tottenham.
