Emerson Royal has revealed that Antonio Conte is just as passionate during training sessions as he is on the touchline during Tottenham’s matches.

Few coaches in world football are as animated on the sidelines as Conte is, with the Italian usually seen kicking and heading every ball during games. 

The 53-year-old’s fighting spirit was evident on Sunday as he and Thomas Tuchel had multiple altercations during Chelsea’s 2-2 draw with Tottenham.

Both Conte and Tuchel have been criticised for their antics (Sky Sports) but Emerson insisted the Spurs boss was not putting on a show because he has a similar level of intensity on a daily basis.

The former Real Betis man also spoke about the Tottenham head coach’s attention to detail during training.

The Brazilian told Globo Esporte: “Conte is the same coach on the sidelines, in training, in video lectures. He is like that in all aspects, explosive, demands, he works hard.

“This activates our team, makes us pay attention to the smallest details, to the positioning of the body before the execution of the moves, in the conversations with videos before the beginning of each activity.”

Emerson admitted that Conte also puts a lot of focus on playing with speed during training instead of dueling on the ball for too long.

The 23-year-old added about the Italian: “One word he repeats a lot is ‘quickly’. He likes everything done with speed. Conte always talks about the rhythm with the ball, passing it, ‘pam, pam, pam’, one or two touches. without taking too long.”

Spurs Web Opinion

The one thing that is evident since Conte arrived at Spurs is the fact that we always finish games very strongly, no matter who we are playing against. The intensity with which the players train, likely contributes to them having more in the tank than the opposition towards the end of matches.
