Conte sets sights on Premier League, Champions League glory at Tottenham

Antonio Conte had high hopes for his first full season as Tottenham manager, declaring his ambition to win both the Premier League and the Champions League.

The Italian has previously described his accomplishment in getting the Spurs into the top four last season as a “miracle”.

But after a summer of big investments with the signings of Richarlison, Yves Bissouma, Jed Spence, Ivan Perisic, Clément Lenglet and Fraser Forster, Conte is aiming much higher for this season.

“Why not the Premier League and the Champions League?” Conte said with a smile ahead of his side’s first league game of the season at home to Southampton on Saturday.

“My goal and the goal of the club is to get better. This is a process that we started seven months ago. If you get a place in the Champions League, it does not mean that you have reached your goal.

Conte has won a championship in each of his last three spells at Juventus, Chelsea and Inter Milan.

However, he also has a reputation for not putting down roots. His brief stint at all three clubs ended painfully.

That scenario seemed to play out again when Conte threatened to leave Tottenham just months after taking charge during a four-game losing streak in five league games in January and February.

But the 53-year-old insisted he was looking to create a legacy with the Spurs.

“I said that I want to build something important with this club because I like to win,” he added.

“My experience is that we are moving in the right direction.

“At the same time, I know that the club needed one more step to compete with the best teams in Europe.

“For this reason, we should not be presumptuous or arrogant. We have to work, work, work to improve on and off the pitch to become a top club.”
