Fans chant Antonio Conte’s name–but Spurs boss reckons it’s too early

Fans chant Antonio Conte’s name–but Spurs boss reckons it’s too early

Spurs produced a resounding 3-0 victory over Norwich on Sunday. Goals from Lucas Moura, Davinson Sanchez and Son Heung-min earned Conte a third successive Premier League victory on the trot, moving up the fifth place in the process.

Under Conte, Spurs have managed to pocket 10 points out of a possible 12, which is rather impressive a start, to say the least.

The Italian’s arrival at north London seems to have reinvigorated Spurs, and fans are thrilled to bits at such development.

Towards the end of the latest victory, Spurs supporters chanted Conte’s name in celebration of what was an emphatic push for a Champions League finish.

Standing on the sidelines and seemingly moved by the gesture, Conte clapped his hands back in an apparent display of reception.

Speaking about the supporters after the game, the Italian manager admitted to being grateful and enthusiastic. But also considering the unwavering amount of support to be a little premature, he felt the need to add :

“I’ve only just arrived. Only one month and I have this responsibility to deserve this name. I think it’s too much and I want to show in the future to deserve this.”

It isn’t actually surprising to see Conte receive the amount of support that he does. And the fact that he hasn’t lost his sense of proportion, remaining focused on his long-term goals, just goes to show the level of commitment he has towards the club and its supporters.

As things stand, Spurs are slowly starting to get the hang of playing under their new manager, appearing formidable as they should. And if anything, there has never been a better time than right now to start dreaming big if you’re a Spurs fan.
