Conte has been there and done that
Much like Jose Mourinho before him – but in a very different style and fashion – one of the biggest reasons to want Antonio Conte as the manager is the success of his teams. Across three different teams in Serie A, with Chelsea, and even with the Italian National team, Antonio Conte has had success.
For the last decade, he has not coached a team that has averaged less than 2 points per match. That is incredible, with Italy being his lowest return with a mere 2.0 points per match over 24 games. That match-to-match success has translated into eight major trophies, including five league championships and three cups.
Juventus had not won a trophy in seven years and then won Serie A three straight times, with Paratici side-by-side with Conte. And while the majority of his success has come in Italy, six of his eight major trophies, he did win in his two seasons in England as well.
Yes, Chelsea spent but the rewards were real with the Premier League title in his first season 2016/17 and the FA Cup in his second season.
I do get that Pochettino won a couple of trophies this season at PSG but that was not even his team, it was the team that Thomas “I can beat Pep Guardiola” Tucel built. Those Juventus teams, that Chelsea team, and even Inter Milan this season were all teams that Antonio Conte built, he can do the same at Tottenham.
