Antonio Conte’s Tottenham appointment trolled by Chelsea legend Marcel Desailly


The serial winner that is Antonio Conte is back in the Premier League.

The fiery Italian has taken up the reigns at a teetering Tottenham as he looks to get the north London side back on track and competing among the big boys.

Nuno Espirito Santo fell afoul of one of the shortest managerial stints in Premier League history as he was quickly ushered out of the door by the Tottenham hierarchy.

Spurs chief Daniel Levy only had one man in mind to replace the Portuguese and wasn’t going to take no for an answer this time around.

Conte had initially rejected Spurs’ advances in the summer, but has done a full 180 as he now takes charge of a side struggling to make an impact on the league.

His glittering CV speaks for itself – the man just knows how to win football games and, invariably, titles.

On the surface, he looks to be the dream appointment for a club that has been dangerously trophy shy for many a year now.

Opportunities have come and gone, with Spurs’ lack of killer edge really letting them down in the moments when they needed to stand up and be counted.

Under Conte, however, that could all change, with the Italian supremo already believed to have left the Spurs stars ‘deeply impressed’, despite not taking official charge of a training session as of yet.

Desailly trolls Spurs on Instagram 

However, not everyone is quite as enthused about Conte’s appointment at Spurs as others.

In fact, Chelsea legend Marcel Desailly has made his feelings infinitely clear with a comedic post on his Instagram story trolling Spurs as a club in general.

The image, which you can see below, shows former Spurs boss, Jose Mourinho, whispering something into the ear of Conte in a previous meeting, with a speech bubble dubbed onto the picture and four laughing emojis to boot.

‘They pay you to come, then they pay to leave and you don’t even have to win anything. It’s incredible!!’ 


Unsurprisingly, Chelsea fans have been lapping up the content and having a good chuckle at what, for now, is a painfully true statement for Spurs.

However, should Conte be given the time he needs, and should Levy back him to the hilt in the market, then this joke could come back to bite the French legend.
