But Tuchel momentarily lost all sense of professionalism when asked if he too would one day consider a move across London.

When quizzed, the German chief chuckled hysterically.

This was no minor giggle or fleeting grin, either – it was a full-on laugh out loud.

Composing himself, Tuchel attempted to cover his tracks, saying: “I have enough to do here.

“I’m happy where I am.”

Tuchel continued by piling praise on Conte – who oversaw the Spursiest of games on Thursday night as Tottenham nearly blew a three-goal lead against nine-man Vitesse in the Europa Conference League.

The Blues boss said: “Of course, it’s good news for Premier League.

“[Conte] is of the best managers in the world… look at his record, look at his titles.

“He will make it super tough to play against Tottenham, I’m absolutely sure.”

In what was turning into the perfect press conference for Chelsea fans, Tuchel reiterated: “I’m in a happy place and I’m not concerned what other people do and other clubs do.

“I enjoy very much where I am.”

Meanwhile, Conte will take charge of his first Premier League game at Tottenham with a trip to Everton on Sunday.
