And he told the club’s website he believes Conte will push the north London side onto the next level.

He said after the Roma game:

“I’m happy to be with [Conte] and this club.

“He’s living football, and I like that. I want a coach like him, knowing he can push the team higher and the players.

“We are trying to do what he wants, and every training [session] is not more accessible, but we are working [hard].

“I like him because he’s crazy, like me. But good crazy, because he’s crazy of football.”

Meanwhile, Conte saw the positives despite the defeat to former Spurs boss Jose Mourinho.

Although Tottenham’s head coach was unhappy with the manor in which his team conceded from a set piece.

“For sure, it was an adamant game, but I think it’s good in this way because, in one week, we have to start the season,” he said.

“It’s positive to have this type of test, a tough test, and to understand that if we want to try to be competitive and win in every game, we must continue to go strong in every situation.

“The players know we don’t want to lose, even in a friendly game. But, unfortunately, we lost due to detail because we conceded a goal from a corner, and we have to pay more attention because if you want to go to another level, you have to take care of the details.”
