    CONTE: MY TOUGHEST JOB

    Antonio Conte says managing Tottenham is the biggest challenge of his career.

    The Italian insists Spurs are having to start again as the team they have now is at a “medium level”.

    Conte and his players are still reeling from last Thursday’s embarrassing Europa Conference League loss away to Slovenian minnows NS Mura.

    The former Chelsea boss took over at Tottenham last month but he has warned he will not be able to turn the North Londoners around overnight.

    Ahead of Spurs Premier League clash at home to Brentford tonight, he said: “This is a big challenge for me.

    “This is a big challenge for the club. And this is a big challenge for the players. For everybody.

    “The club, in the last years, has been slipping.

    “If I compare Tottenham to when I was in Chelsea, Tottenham were very very competitive, a really really strong team.
