Antonio Conte’s arrival in north London rightfully has many people excited. Fans of the Premier League will get to see the charismatic Italian in dugouts across the nation again after his stint at Chelsea, whilst Tottenham supporters will hope to see him secure a European finish as their side looks to improve on recent poor results. But one man in particular has already voiced his approval of Conte after just a week of being managed by him in Spurs’ Sergio Reguilon.

Reguilon, 24, joined Tottenham last summer for a fee of £25million.

He is yet to score for the Lilywhites, and will make his 50th appearance in all competitions when manager Conte decides to field him next.

Considered one of the best young left-backs in the world, Reguilon has already made 45 La Liga appearances for Real Madrid and Sevilla, boasting a blend of experience and athleticism which Conte desires.

The Spaniard is currently battling it out with Ben Davies for the left-back role at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

But under the guidance of Conte, the Spaniard claims he is already feeling the benefits of the Italian’s coaching prowess.

“The gaffer is special,” Reguilon told Standard Sport.

“He loves training hard but now we don’t have a lot of time to work on the things he wants on the pitch. So we did a lot of meetings with videos this week.

“I’ve never played five at the back before. I have to learn quickly. The gaffer has told me he wants me to be solid in defence but at the same moment I have to arrive in the box, help the strikers, score goals, give assists.

“Now I have more of a chance to score goals and give assists. So let’s work.

“I have to see many videos with the staff to do what they want on the pitch. I’m enjoying the position a lot because I can attack more but I have to run double!

“I’ve watched a lot of videos of Chelsea and Inter Milan, and I have a friend at Inter, Achraf Hakimi who I spoke to about the gaffer.

“He told me I will improve a lot under him and I want to do that as soon as possible. He said I will have to work really, really hard but I will improve a lot. In one week, I can already see that.”

Having started in both fixtures under Conte, it appears the Spaniard will only get better.

Tottenham have fallen to ninth in the table, having won just two of their last eight Premier League games.

And Conte will look to resolve that in his first Premier League home fixture against Leeds after the international break.
