Former Man United legend details why Tottenham needs to back manager Antonio Conte
By Eddie Razo -

Tottenham Hotspur is close to finishing in the top four and clinching UEFA Champions League football for next season. The north London club needs Arsenal to drop points against either Newcastle United or Everton, and they’ll secure playing in Europe’s top competition.

Nonetheless, English football pundit and former Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand stated that manager Antonio Conte had put the squad in a position where chairman Daniel Levy has to back the Italian tactician financially to improve the team and challenge for trophies. 

Ferdinand adds that the work Conte has done since taking over in November when Spurs decided to sack Nuno Espírito Santo has been impressive, considering the number of points Tottenham has accumulated. 

“I think he has done enough to deserve that. He is third in terms of points gained and goals scored since he got here, which tells you the levels he is at,” Ferdinand said, per The Daily Mail. “They put in a performance at Liverpool, they’re coming and it showed at Anfield. He wants to see that play out. You have to bet on him.”

“You can’t question this guy in terms of what he can bring, the intensity. Where do they go from here? If you’re not taking Conte, who is in the market better equipped? Nobody. Conte is the man 100 per cent for Spurs.”

Tottenham has one final match against Norwich City, and if they’re able to win that along with a hiccup from their north London rivals, they will see Conte provide quite the turnaround going from the middle of the table to in the top four.

By the way , wasn’t it a joy yesterday watching Christian Eriksen just ‘boss’ that game v Everton . Kinda reminded you that class is permanent …………..would love to have him back in that form , could he reproduce for us — or is it just nostalgia ??

He can pick a pass from midfield that is a joy to watch. We didn’t give him enough TLC (or money) and he lost his mojo. Our loss.

During the close season of 2022 there wont be a fan in the country , let alone the Prem , that wont be begging for investment in the team/squad for next season.
Spurs supporters will shout that player purchases ‘have to be right’ .
We will have literally no chance of ‘the high end’ joining us if we do not secure 4th place [ come on Newcastle !] so can I ask the scaremongers to hold their tongues if this does not happen .
It has become very obvious to me that in Conte we have a manager that understands the machinations of this game far better than was previously perceived .
He has a charm , an anger , an eye for a player , a zest for life few can match . We MUST NOT LOSE HIM .
We fell in love with Poch , irreplaceable often associated with him , but we heard he did not have that killer instinct ? CONTE HAS !!
However it pans out , we gotta get behind this man , I genuinely feel he can transform a great club into a Global force ……….. C O Y S

That is whole lot of feel good stuff. A. Not sure what backing the manager will mean. I like if we just should and never players one would like to see in. The outs are not up for debate, but drop dandies out there in the market you would love them to sign in backing the manager. I would start with signing Nick Pope off the bat. Send Dane Scarlett loan, then take a long look at Parrot behind Kane.

Suggesting players is easy = fitting into Conte’s plans/formations is much more difficult to foresee .
However watching Eriksen yesterday brought a yearning for that midfield maestro , gazza , modric , hoddle , players of a [ almost ] bygone age . Today’s game is so much more technical , so happy to leave that to the man i think knows his onions . For now i have complete faith in Conte and Boy , do i hope Newcastle come good tonight………… C O Y S !!

That is where maybe me and most fans differ in not waiting to see who pans out to decide whether or not they were players I would like. The key here is I do not like the 343 system which makes it difficult for me to find players. My first signing would be Nick Pope. The goal keeping slot is a no brainer for me. And yes, I will take Erikssen back as in my opinion he is amongst the very best creative midfielder out there faults and all. Holding mid will stay as we have 3 good ones to chose from. Upfront Martinez will be my #1 choice. Richarlison would be my second choice playing off Kane and Son. Big and strong and can drift wide on both sides with ease, could be a good #10 to keep up top since Kane move in, out and deep at times.
