A whole host of Tottenham Hotspur fans on Twitter were in love with a key decision Antonio Conte has made.
Tottenham are still yet to broker their first deal of the January transfer window, but they could have made a breakthrough last week had Conte not stepped in and stopped any potential deal for Philippe Coutinho developing, which is what The Daily Mirror (as relayed by The Express) is claiming.
Will Spurs sell Ndombele this month?
The Brazilian winger is now on his way to Aston Villa and will link up with his former Liverpool teammate Steven Gerrard, but this could be a good thing for Spurs, as it shows the board are listening to what Conte wants and doesn’t want this transfer window.
A lot of Spurs fans on Twitter are excited by this latest Conte claim.
What have these Tottenham fans been saying?
“SIIUUU CONTE BAL”
“So enic trying to get a player the manager doesn’t want??? Get enic and levy out of our club.”
“he knows ball”
“I love Conte even more now!”
“Finally a manager that knows quality over hype”
Coutinho has joined Villa on loan in what may be seen as a big risk given his awful record during his time at Barcelona, coupled with the number of injuries he’s picked up since leaving the Premier League, so there are plenty of reasons these Spurs fans may be pleased that the club have swerved clear of signing him.
