I did not comment to you when Antonio Conte was rumoured to be joining Tottenham as manager because I knew the deal would be almost impossible to pull off.
Conte and Spur’s chairman Daniel Levy remind me of the irresistible force meeting the immovable object.
Working together would have produced fireworks and in my opinion would have ended in tears very quickly.
Conte is fiery, committed, passionate and emotional and wears his heart on his sleeve.
He is also notoriously difficult to work with if he doesn’t get his own way.
Levy is someone who knows he is the boss, plays all his cards from a position of strength and he plays second fiddle to no one.
Rather like Conte.
