Journalist Paul Brown thinks "passion" is the biggest thing that Antonio Conte is going to bring to Tottenham.

What's the latest news with Conte?

The Italian was confirmed as the new Spurs manager on Tuesday morning, replacing Nuno Espirito Santo, who was sacked 24 hours earlier after the weekend defeat to Manchester United.

Daniel Levy attempted to hire the former Chelsea manager this summer, but Conte revealed in his first interview with the club that the timing wasn't right after he'd only recently left Inter Milan.

But less than six months later, the Tottenham chairman finally got his man, who's signed an 18-month contract in north London, taking him until the end of the 2022-2023 season.

Conte's short-term goals will be to improve results on the pitch following five Premier League defeats this season, whilst uniting the supporters in the stands after the toxic atmosphere led to Nuno's sacking against United.

The 52-year-old has an impressive CV, winning four Serie A league titles with Juventus and Inter, whilst enjoying Premier League glory with Chelsea back in 2016-2017.

Along with all of his coaching qualities, Brown is expecting Conte to bring one thing to the Spurs squad.

What did Brown say?

He told GIVEMESPORT: "In one word, passion. Didn't see a lot of that from Nuno and didn't see a lot of that from Mourinho at the end of his time there."

When is Conte's first game as Tottenham manager?

Conte's first game back in the Premier League will be a trip to Everton on Sunday, a ground where he collected four points in two visits as Chelsea manager, but he has a Conference League assignment to contend with before attention turns to Goodison Park.

Having only been officially appointed on Tuesday morning, Conte was made to wait for his work permit to be approved, which meant he was in danger of missing tonight's game against Vitesse.

Did Tottenham Hotspur sign Moussa Sissoko on transfer deadline day in 2016?

However, according to The Athletic, Conte has been cleared and will therefore be in the dugout for the first time since leaving Inter Milan at the end of last season as Spurs try to avenge their 1-0 defeat to the Dutch outfit in the reverse fixture last month.
