Tottenham legend reveals what he asked Lukaku

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte has had success everywhere he has gone, and it’s no wonder why Daniel Levi brought him to Tottenham so he can revive the fortunes of the North London club.

The impact of the Italian at Tottenham has been instant, as Spurs results have since changed for the better under his watch.

Former Tottenham striker Jermaine Defoe has admitted that he had to message Chelsea striker Romelu Lukaku and former Blue Victor Moses, who worked with Conte at Inter, to know the secret of the Italian.

“You’d like to think that he’d get the opportunity to get the players he wants just to give Tottenham an opportunity to kick on,” Defoe told talkSPORT.

“Everyone knows how much I love the football club and when Antonio Conte got the job I was so excited. He is an unbelievable manager with his experience.

“You’ve got to look at the stats. I looked at the running stats and in such a short space of time I could not believe the improvement, what was he doing in training?

“I messaged Lukaku and people like Ashley Young and Victor Moses who have played under Conte and they said that the players have never, ever trained so hard. But at the same time it’s enjoyable and that’s why the players are getting those numbers.

“I believe that if he gets the opportunity to bring in the players he wants then of course the club will kick on and get into that Champions League spot.”
