New Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte revealed his first game against Vitesse was a crazy match but one that is important for the development of the team. Conte replaced Nuno Espirito Santo as the new boss after the latter was sacked just four months on from his appointment. After receiving his work permit, Conte led the side out in the UEFA Europa Conference League clash. His first game was a crazy one that had five goals and three red cards. The win helped them to jump to second on the table with two games to spare in the group stages.
“My first impression is that it was a crazy game because we were winning 3-0 and we were dominating the game and created many chances to score other goals, but instead in 10 minutes we conceded twice and we lost a bit of confidence,” Tottenham head coach Antonio Conte said. “I think you have to work also on these aspects, but we should have won and we won.”
“For sure, in the second half after the 10 men, they tried to push us and then I decided to make three changes because I could see that we had lost the balance and in the end, I think we deserved to win as we created more chances than Vitesse,” he added. “I call them crazy games. I want a stable team and when there is the possibility to kill the opponent you must kill. For sure my team showed me great commitment and resilience. For sure, this team needed to win by also suffering. It was important today.”
