Tottenham vs Roma: What has been said?
Tony Cascarino insists Tottenham will not be ‘Spursy’ anymore thanks to a total transformation under Antonio Conte.
“They are not going to be Spursy anymore,” said the Weekend Sports Breakfast host on talkSPORT.
“When Antonio Conte first got the job, it was quite clear he didn’t agree with the direction of the football club.
“It got to early February and they lost to Wolves and Southampton in the Premier League.
“He was clearly absolutely furious. Then they lost to Burnley and he had a total meltdown.
“That was the moment their whole season changed. He went after everything at the club.
“He’s a manager who doesn’t need a job: he does it because he’s addicted to it, he loves it and he demands the highest level.
“It must be very refreshing for Spurs fans.”
