Dejan Kulusevski has one word to describe Antonio Conte after working with him at Tottenham

Dejan Kulusevski has told Tottenham Hotspur’s official website he has one word to describe Antonio Conte after working with him at the club. 

Kulusevski joined Spurs from Juventus back in January and has made a huge impact in North London. 

The 22-year-old has become a key component in Tottenham’s attacking trio, alongside Harry Kane and Heung-Min Son. 

And after working under the likes of Massimiliano Allegri at Juve, he’s now had his say on Conte.

Kulusevski has one word to describe Conte 

Speaking to Spurs Play, Kulusevski was asked to use one word to describe Conte. 

He responded: “Winner.” 

Kulusevski isn’t wrong either. Conte’s track-record speaks for itself as the Spurs boss has won titles in England and Italy. 

And the Italian has clearly had a huge impact on this Spurs team after just under a year in charge. 

Conte took over as Tottenham boss last November and the team were struggling after a poor spell under Nuno Espirito Santo. 

But the former Inter Milan manager turned their fortunes around and got the club back into the Champions League. 

Kulusesvki was a big part of this too as he slotted straight into Conte’s side after his January switch.

The Sweden international put up brilliant numbers as he managed five goals and eight assists in just 18 Premier League appearances. 

The Spurs winger has clearly rediscovered his best form under Conte. He is now displaying the promise he showed at Parma when he won the young player of the year in Italy.  

Kulusesvki will have to battle it out with Richarlison this season for a place in Tottenham’s side. But he is clearly a Conte-favourite and will be a key player for the Italian this season.
