Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel has laughed off any suggestions that he could potentially see himself managing Tottenham Hotspur in the future.

Tottenham confirmed the appointment of former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte on Monday, who replaced Nuno Espirito Santo who was given his marching orders earlier that day.

Ironically, Nuno was given the head coach role in North London to succeed another former Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho.

Tuchel burst into laughter when he was posed the question about following in the footsteps of Conte in the future and composed himself before insisting that he has enough of a job on his hands at Stamford Bridge while later praising the Italian.

The pair will lock horns in the Premier League on January 23rd when Spurs make the short trip to Stamford Bridge, where Conte will certainly be looking to get one over his former employer.

Conte will take charge of his first Premier League game as Spurs head coach tomorrow afternoon when his side face Everton at Goodison Park.

He told The Sun: “I have enough to do here.

“I’m happy where I am.”

Tuchel went on to add: “Of course, it’s good news for Premier League.

“[Conte] is of the best managers in the world… look at his record, look at his titles.

“He will make it super tough to play against Tottenham, I’m absolutely sure.”

Conte enjoyed success at Chelsea having won both the Premier League and FA Cup, Spurs fans will be hoping that their new man can end their thirteen-year wait for silverware but must also appreciate that he needs to be given time to implement his style and expectation on his players.
