Antonio Conte said managing Tottenham was an “honour” and vowed to “repay the trust” of chairman Daniel Levy by reviving the fortunes of the struggling Premier League club.

The Italian was appointed on Tuesday, a day after Spurs sacked Nuno Espirito Santo following last weekend’s limp 3-0 defeat at home to Manchester United.

Conte, who guided Chelsea to the 2016⁄17 Premier League title, had said Levy’s “contagious enthusiasm and determination” convinced him to join.

“It’s a great pleasure, a great honor to become the Tottenham manager. This is a great opportunity to come back to England in a club of top players,” he told Spurs TV. “The club and Daniel Levy wanted me strongly and it has been an honor to accept. Now, for sure, I want to repay this trust.”

The 52-year-old led Inter Milan to their first Serie A title since 2010 last season to break Juventus’ nine-year stranglehold on the Italian league before leaving the Nerazzurri.

Conte began Juve’s period of dominance with three Serie A titles between 2011 and 2014 and managed Italy from 2014 to 2016 before his two-year stint at Chelsea.

His spell at Stamford Bridge saw the Blues accumulate 93 points and score 85 goals en route to the Premier League title before FA Cup success in 2018.
