Tim Sherwood makes silverware claim about Antonio Conte at Tottenham, details David Moyes stance
Tim Sherwood has told The Analysis Show that Antonio Conte could win a trophy at Tottenham this season – and reckons David Moyes will be worried.
Conte, 52, has finally put pen to paper on a deal taking him to Tottenham – after Spurs failed to nab the Italian last summer. He has signed until 2023.
The ex-Chelsea gaffer, who last won the Scudetto with Inter, is see as a coup for Fabio Paratici and Daniel Levy. Spurs need a spark, and Conte is that.
In the mean time, Tottenham have been drawn to play host to West Ham on December 21 in the Carabao Cup quarter-finals. West Ham are on fire.
Sherwood thinks Tottenham can win a title and the Carabao Cup – as well as the Conference League – are within the Italian’s grasp this season.
Not only that, but ex-Spurs boss Sherwood thinks that the last thing Moyes would have wanted, ahead of the quarter-final, is Conte in the dugout.
“It was a toxic atmosphere at the weekend. Now, it is a new era. You see this guy with silverware at the end of the season,” Sherwood said.
“There is a great chance they can win something. The last thing David Moyes would’ve wanted is Conte at Tottenham. They can win Cup.”
Sherwood on Conte: Can Tottenham beat West Ham in December?
Spurs are without a trophy in 13 years, losing two finals in recent seasons – the Champions League final in 2019, and the 2021 Carabao Cup final.
But Conte is a serial winner, a leader that gets the best out of all of his players. He has the solutions, when not many other managers do.
So, with six weeks between the last-eight clash between the two London rivals, can Conte beat West Ham? Of course, and he has time to prepare.
As Sherwood said, Moyes will have been hoping that Spurs held on to Santo – having beaten Santo’s Tottenham already. But Conte is a different animal.
