Son lauds Conte; says Tottenham boss is always shouting in training

Son Heung-min has told Stadium Astro that Antonio Conte is always shouting at the Tottenham Hotspur players in training, but insisted that the squad absolutely love working with the Italian.

Conte has certainly had an impact on Spurs. He has taken the club back into contention for the top-four in the Premier League. Before the last two games, it appeared that Tottenham may seal a Champions League return at a canter.

“I never see him sit down, I never see him sit down on the bench because he’s just in to it, passionate,” he told Stadium Astro.

“It feels like he’s playing with us. Luckily I didn’t pass on the touchline! It gives us so much positive energy because he’s so much into it.

“Every single training session he’s always shouting, always giving us details, because if someone doesn’t do what he asks for he’s angry.

“The details what he asks for is really important for him and really important for us as well. Everyone just loves it. I said this before but I fell in love.”

Son comments highlight importance of Tottenham keeping Antonio Conte

Of course, in the last few days, there has been speculation about Conte’s future at the club. Reports have claimed that the Tottenham boss is a contender to succeed Mauricio Pochettino at Paris Saint-Germain.

It is not yet clear how keen Conte is to take the job. But the links act as a reminder of how important it is that Tottenham give Conte what he wants in the months ahead.

Clearly, the players would be hugely disappointed if the Spurs boss did move on.

Tottenham look to have a real opportunity to get themselves back into serious contention for trophies and top honours with Conte at the helm.

It would certainly be a devastating blow for many at Tottenham if Conte did ultimately move on after this season.
