Robbie Keane and Jamie Redknapp praise Antonio Conte’s “tactical genius” in their comeback win against Leeds

Robbie Keane, Micah Richards and Jamie Redknapp praised Tottenham coach Antonio Conte after his team’s 2-1 win over Leeds.

The North London side initially fell behind in the first half after Daniel James’ goal put Leeds in the lead. After the break, however, they came out stronger and scored two goals through Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Sergio Regulion, securing their first win under Conte.

Keane praised Conte as a “top manager” and praised him for Tottenham’s high-contrast performance in the second half, which resulted in them having better control of the game and playing more on their forefoot.

The 41-year-old said after the game on Sky Sports: “We always talk about how we want Spurs to play football. The feel-good factor seems to be back for Spurs and Conte’s appointment has been well received.

“They were far from the pace in the first half. I thought Son and Moura had gotten a little closer to Kane. They showed the energy in the second half compared to the first half.

“Conte must have had a few tough words for her at halftime. In the second half they were the much better team.

“That’s why he’s won five championships in the last seven years. He’s clearly a top manager. Tactically he’s brilliant. In the first half they were a long way off, in the second half he understood that that had to change.

“With a manager like him, you can (challenge for the top four). They are a bit weak defensively. I like Sanchez, Romero is handsome but he’s young. They need to be a little tighter. I think they need another striker to help Harry. If Harry is injured, how will they score goals? ‘.

Conte showed his passion by whipping the crowd up and then pounding the air with joy with the full-time whistle. Richards was impressed when he said, “If you see a manager asking you, that is exactly what you need. We didn’t see that under Nuno. ‘

Jamie Redknapp also praised Conte as he lauded him as a “tactical” genius “and helped Tottenham fight for a place in the Champions League under the Italian’s direction.

“He’s looking at players, he’s looking at different options. Sessegnon could end up being her Victor Moses, who knows. You have a tactical genius. Conte changed Chelsea’s mentality, pushing her over the line.

“The fans and the players have to get involved. If they invest in January, fourth place will be taken. ‘

The result against Marcelo Bielsa’s team left Tottenham in seventh place, seven points behind fourth-placed West Ham. They’ll be heading to Turf Moor next weekend to play Sean Dyches Burnley.
