Spurs are ready for Antonio Conte's big challenge

Antonio Conte, the new Tottenham manager, says that he has a "big and big challenge" in making the club succeed.

After Nuno Espirito Sante's sacking, Conte was named Inter Milan's new manager.

In his first game, the Italian led Spurs to victory against Vitesse in Thursday's Europa Conference League.

Conte stated that "It's not fair or good at the moment to say we want this or achieve this."

The 52-year old said that the club should have a vision on the pitch, as they prepare for Everton in Sunday's Premier League.

This is a huge challenge. A big, big challenge. Conte added, "I know that this club isn't winning for many years."

"But I believe I'm here for the win. The win does not happen in one, two, three or more days. It takes one month. Vision is essential.

"This club has a fantastic vision beyond the pitch. We need to have a vision for the pitch. This is crucial if we are to win.

After winning the Premier League (2016-17) at Chelsea and the FA Cup in his second season, Conte returned to London before being fired in 2018.

Before leaving Inter in May, the former boss of Italy and Juventus was able to win Inter their first Serie A title after 11 years.

Spurs signed him to an 18-month contract. He said that "we can work together long term", but is reluctant to identify his goals with the club.

Conte stated, "At the moment, we've only got to be strong. To start working together and think we need to improve." There's plenty of room for improvement in this group.
