Tottenham winger Dejan Kulusevski has been very impressive since joining the London club and he seems to be enjoying his time playing under Antonio Conte.
In an interview with Gazzetta Dello Sport, the Swedish international has revealed that he has not worked with someone like Conte in his career before and the Italian has made a huge impact on his performances at Tottenham.
Kulusevski told Gazzetta Dello Sport: “I wasn’t happy at Juventus so joining Tottenham was a great choice for me. I’m so happy to work under Conte.
“Trust me, I’ve never seen anyone in my life motivated as Antonio Conte. His words enter into your heart”.
Furthermore, Kulusevski also reflected on the fact that Conte dropped him for three matches in a row against the likes of Fulham, Marseille and Sporting Lisbon.
The Swedish winger claimed that Conte never provided him with an explanation behind his decision but he does not feel the need to ask for one either.
Kulusevski claims that he is enjoying his football in Tottenham and he is playing at a really high level.
Speaking to Fotbollskanalen, Kulusevski said: “He gave no explanation. It was more that he wanted to talk and hear how I was doing.
“Personally, I didn’t feel like I needed to ask why I wasn’t playing because I felt like I was playing at a really high level right now. It was more that we talked and joked around a bit.”
Spurs have a wealth of options in attack this season after the signing of Richarlison. There is bound to be rotation throughout the season in order to keep the squad fresh and motivated.
It will be interesting to see whether Kulusevski can continue in his rich vein of form and hold down a regular starting berth in the coming months.
