A CONTE-NENTAL WELCOME
Good evening and welcome to SunSport’s live coverage of the Europa Conference League contest between Tottenham Hotspur and Vitesse Arnhem.
If a week is a long time in politics, then five days is a gargantuan period at Spurs.
The full time whistle at the end of their 3-0 home defeat to Manchester United on Saturday evening was met with overwhelming boos amid protests against owner and manager.
The Spurs fans were revolting and, in the fallout that followed, a furious Daniel Levy bowed to social media meltdowns and sacked head coach Nuno Espirito Santo after less than five months in the role.
Within 24 hours, there was a new man was in charge. The dissenting voices had been appeased, and all was well again with the White Hart Lane faithful.
Now back at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium, it will be an entirely different mood that welcomes incoming coach Antonio Conte to the club this evening.
Conte and his staff discovered earlier today that they had been granted work permits in time to reach London and take charge of this match, and will wish to make an immediate impact.
Because if the Italian is targeting a trophy in his first season back in England, then the Londoners could really do with a win in this new competition against the side that upset them 1-0 in the Netherlands two weeks ago.
With three games remaining, Spurs sit third in Group G, three points behind leaders Rennes and two points behind their Dutch opponents.
It’s an eight o’clock kick-off in the capital, and news of Antonio Conte’s first Tottenham team should be announced on the airwaves imminently.
