Antonio Conte invited Juventus legend Alessandro Del Piero to his team’s training session at Hotspur Way on Tuesday, according to The Daily Mail.

Del Piero was in London to support his old side taking on Chelsea in a crucial Champions League encounter on Tuesday night.

The 47-year-old would not have liked what he saw at Stamford Bridge as the Old Lady fell to a 4-0 defeat at the hands of Thomas Tuchel’s side.

However, the former Italian international was shown around Tottenham’s world-class training facility by Conte and Tottenham sporting director Fabio Paratici.

The legendry number nine was also seen in conversation with Harry Kane and Spurs fans will be hoping that he passed on one or two tips that would help the 28-year-old put his recent goal-drought behind him.

Both Kane and Son Heung-min took to social media to express their delight at being able to chat with the legendry marksmen.

Del Piero was arguably one of the greatest goal-poachers to ever play the game. However, players like him, Van Nistelrooy and Defoe have completely died out as modern-day strikers are expected to do much more than just score goals.

That is arguably why Kane remains the best striker in the world (along with Lewandowski) despite his drought this season. The Tottenham man is able to link up play and hold up the ball impressively while also having a goal record that rivals the best in history.
