Dejan Kulusevski has revealed that he has never come across someone who loves winning football matches as much as Antonio Conte does.
Just three games into the season, there is already an indication that Tottenham are becoming adept at picking up results irrespective of the level of their performances.
While the Lilywhites thrashed Southampton on an opening day, they had to come back from a goal down twice at Stamford Bridge to rescue a draw.
Against Wolves, Spurs looked extremely lacklustre in the first half but dialed up the intensity after the interval, which Bruno Lage’s side struggled to cope with.
Conte praised the way his players “suffered” in the first half against Wolves and the character they showed to grind out a 1-0 win (BT Sport).
Kulusevski has now given an insight into Conte’s mentality, explaining that the Italian only cares about winning and wants his players to be ruthless.
Watch what the Swede told Sky Sports Football Daily about the Italian’s unique personality:
🗣 "He always tells me don't enjoy, don't have fun. You're not here to have fun, you're here to win games."

It can be seen from Kulusevski’s body language that he absolutely loves every minute of working with Conte. The Italian is building a team that is very much in his image – one that is prepared to fight and scrape for every point.
