Antonio Conte and his diet plans have gone viral since his appointment and Tottenham Hotspur star Emerson Royal has had his say on the new rules.

The Italian has been brought in by Daniel Levy and Fabio Paratici to instil a winning mentality at Spurs. There have been a lot of changes at the club already, but none more popular than his strict ban on certain food items.

Conte has banned the consumption of fast food, ketchup, mayonnaise and even butter. He wants the food his players eat to act as fuel during the games, and that’s one rule he isn’t ready to compromise on.

Emerson, who likes his food, was asked about the new restrictions. He admitted that it’s hard, but believes that these new rules could make a huge difference on the pitch in the coming weeks and months.


Emerson on Conte’s diet rules: I’ve never seen anything like it

The Brazilian full-back told Sky Sports yesterday: “I do like ketchup! I’m used to not eating that sort of food so it’s not too much of a problem.

Asked if anything else bothers him, he said: “Butter! The butter is gone. It’s true he has stressed the importance of our body fat and taking away some food.

“I’ve never seen anything like it before and at first it was a surprise and a little difficult but it’s so important for our performances. These details can make all the difference.”

TBR View:

Almost every club in the world has a team of nutritionists these days. That side of the game has become more important than ever and Conte is absolutely right to bring it to Tottenham.

The players may not enjoy it initially, but they only have to look at the Italian’s CV to be convinced. Conte has done the same at every club he has ever been in and these rules have helped him win a number of trophies.

If Spurs players really follow what Conte is asking of them, their chances of success will increase considerably in the coming weeks and months.
