Antonio Conte explains Alessandro Del Piero’s visit to Tottenham training ground

Speaking ahead of Tottenham’s Europa League game against Slovenian side NS Mura on Thursday night, Conte revealed to Del Piero that it was ‘good to see’ such an old friend after a long time.

“Alessandro came to visit us at the training ground,” he said.

“He was in London as a Sky guest for the Chelsea vs Juventus game. It was good to see him. We played together, I coached him and together we have won a lot in our careers. It was good to see him again after a long time.

When asked if Del Piero – widely regarded as one of the best strikers in recent European history – had any advice for Kane in bad shape, Conte suggested he could have.

“Yeah, but we’re talking about two world-class forwards. It was good for Harry to see Alessandro and it was the same for Alessandro to see him! Alessandro encouraged all the players and it was good for us.
