Conte, a world class holding midfielder in his prime, timed his challenge to perfection and was replaced by one of his stars in the middle of the circle.

And whilst Tottenham fans have been left in awe by Conte’s commitment, it has left Manchester United fans feeling envious.

One said on Twitter: “Should’ve been ours.”

Whilst another joked saying the Juventus legend is a better defender than club captain Harry Maguire.

They said: “Better defender than Maguire.”

Another footy fan said he isn’t surprised to see Conte getting stuck in during training sessions.

The United fan said: “People forget just how good he was as a player and the successful career he had.”

Conte gives it his all everywhere he manages, and one Liverpool fan suspects the players are already buying into the Italian’s plan.

They replied: “Great dedication of Antonio Conte. Players already inspired by his presence.”

Conte won five Serie A titles and the 1996 Champions League with Juventus and was in the Italy squads that reached the finals of both the 1994 World Cup and Euro 2000 .

Tottenham are yet to be beaten under Conte, winning their Europa League Conference game 3-2 against Vitesse, drawing away at Everton and beating Leeds at home.

And you’d expect the good form to continue until at least mid-December when Spurs travel to Anfield to face Jurgen Klopp’s title-chasing Reds.
