Tottenham coach to Sportmediaset: “I doubted that I might return to the highest degree, the Premier is a dream, I thank him”
Images of Kane throwing and Son being destroyed on the pitch went world wide. In Tottenham there’s an iron sergeant on the bench and within the water (because of his army historical past, ed) as a sports activities coach: the paths of Antonio Conte and Gian Piero Ventroneafter profitable with Lippi’s Juve and seasons in Siena and Bari, he additionally crossed over to London, on the facet of Tottenham. “The story between me and Antonio is a particular story, it began a few years in the past in 2006 and sooner or later it was interrupted by everybody’s will, as a result of luck and circumstances did – he defined. Ventrone solely at Sportmediaset -. However, we’ve got all the time communicated much less and much less, My respect for Antonio and Antonio for me is all the time excessive. For the Premier is a dream, I doubted that he’ll return to the highest degree and I’ve to thank him”.
In November 2021 he determined to comply with Conte to Tottenham. A new and thrilling problem for him in essentially the most stunning and tough competitors on the earth. No doubt what Antonio referred to as him…
“The story between me and Antonio is a particular story, it began a few years in the past in 2006 and sooner or later it was interrupted by the need of every individual, as a result of luck and circumstances did. We, nevertheless, are there. I talk much less and much less, my respect for Antonio and Antonio for me you are all the time excessive. I all the time think about Antonio as the perfect coach, he was my participant for 10 years, we received and misplaced, so for the gamers who allowed me to win with them I’ve a weak spot, I owe it to them. So Antonio’s name made it radar must be alert, and as a result of one other dream for me was to go to the English competitors, to the Premier. I haven’t got a few years forward of me now. To be capable to take part within the Premier League, essentially the most tough, essentially the most thrilling competitors, within the English membership, and in London: in brief, there have been all of the elements in order that you do not suppose about it an excessive amount of”.
Premier is form of the icing on the cake of his lengthy profession…
“Work all the time has its ups and downs, good occasions and unhealthy occasions. This occurred to me too. I used to be skeptical about getting again to the highest degree. We need to thank the one who referred to as me who remembered somebody who would possibly be capable to do it. Let it’s helpful and right here we are.”
What high quality do you admire essentially the most in Antonio Conte?
“His traits are totally different, initially he’s an individual who nonetheless has expertise in soccer, he’s an individual who shouldn’t be happy and for him that is nonetheless a giant distinction, he’s not calm, he’s very busy, he’s all the time. 24 days he sleeps just a little then he has a great conduct and ardour. Lust takes maintain of him and envelops him, he’s 53 years outdated and probably the greatest advisors. I all the time bear in mind the time of Siena and Gigi De Canio that after 3-4 months I mentioned to my spouse Cinzia: ‘This is superb, like Antonio he is not damaged, I’ll be mistaken.’
On the way in which again to Seoul, the British media had been stunned by his ways: Kane threw up and Son fell down exhausted.
“In our recreation it would not take a lot to indicate. Both Kane and Son arrived a couple of days later than the primary ones who appeared on July 4th, as a result of they ended their careers with their worldwide groups round 14. they all the time performed. During the 12 months, Conte gave them sufficient time to relaxation. The gamers had a couple of days of coaching and that day, sadly, it’s agreed that the work of metabolism coincided with the open doorways of the stadium. , a number of thousand individuals, which helped to remove fatigue but in addition helped to push them. and the names of those consultants had plenty of impact if a younger boy got here down in his place. two by two along with the reminiscences of the previous, and right here he’s again (laughter, ed).
Is there a Tottenham participant who has stunned you essentially the most from the run-up?
“There are many, it’s a staff with very quick gamers, gamers who in any case prepare every single day to enhance, from the youngest to a very powerful. Examples are a very powerful gamers who run so quick till somebody faints. On the bottom. Here you need to go quick, there’s plenty of vitality materials, lifeless drop, excessive pace and plenty of sports activities. It’s a race of selection for everybody, from coaches to medical doctors, as a result of you’ve it. The Formula 1 gamers are in your palms.”
Bayern coach Nagelsmann mentioned: “I heard that in Italy it’s tough to be match” after teaching De Ligt. What do you suppose?
“Let’s make a vital level: Physical health doesn’t imply good, in any other case we’d prepare gamers like Marines. It’s straightforward, we prepare them as particular departments and after two days there is no such thing as a one left on the sector. But there’s a sport that we should respect, so a very powerful factor is figure. Today there are concepts many, many copy and paste, so we will do what we would like, even take them to the kayak. some on the sector are sooner than others and do not have many accidents, it is tremendous for me to ship them on the kayak, however we’ve got to ensure. even when it is deep.”
How has the career of an athletic coach modified within the final 30 years because you began?
“The river started in 2005, when Professor Di Prampero – our Italian winner – established a technique of working with parameters, together with metabolic energy, which enlightened all of us. a much bigger glass of energy in understanding the character of this sport. And so since 2005 this new era has modified how they work, however that is now an outdated debate, as a result of many groups work with the ball. The half remains to be working with dry work, with out the ball. Now the vitality is gone, the train is completed, energetic and gentle, however the energy of the sport is now gone. Then there’s one other household that works so arduous to argue. Conte is a coach who offers nice significance to bodily look. We should do not forget that Conte works intelligently in an uncommon approach. The evolution of the coach is to know what is occurring and what you need to put or take away from the record coaching. Also as a result of as we speak the groups that play quite a bit cannot put together. Teams like us who play each 3-4 days need to determine the way to use their gamers on these days to make one thing occur”.
How tough is your job in a staff that all the time performs each three days when it comes to your nationwide and worldwide commitments?
“There are totally different strategies, from the oldest to essentially the most superior, as all the time, the essential factor is that they work. Football is a staff sport however it’s made by every participant, who are born with their traits, which doesn’t exist. One will be capable to change. you deal with all gamers the identical , you will get outcomes from some, however others you may make them worse. The problem for coaches is to acknowledge which areas they suppose they are able to. making particular person work. Here it makes the distinction. Everything. It could be very tough, however every thing will probably be simpler for the coach to have gamers are all the time able to develop their soccer and get well in much less time than regular.”
How does preparation change within the particular season with the World Cup to be performed between November and December?
“The groups must be prepared first, give extra data after three months and guarantee that the groups of this nation don’t arrive empty handed to their groups, this half for me is simple, essentially the most tough is that it’s tough. After the World Cup, as a result of it would rely upon what occurs. We won’t ever know the way the gamers will come again from a optimistic and emotional perspective. So it’s a very tough 12 months. “
You have educated many professionals in about 30 careers. Who has impressed you essentially the most for his or her professionalism and dedication to training?
“Many, from Ravanelli’s Juve, Vialli, Ferrara, Del Piero and Torricelli to our present gamers. High degree, the highest gamers you get. Talent shouldn’t be sufficient, I agree with Arrigo Sacchi : expertise is one thing that you’ve and that may show you how to, however with out including different issues, expertise shouldn’t be sufficient”.
They handed you hit a great fourth place that few believed. This 12 months you are invited to enhance your self. What is your Premier League beginning line-up?
“It’s the identical as final 12 months, City, Liverpool, Chelsea – though they’ve issues in the intervening time – Arsenal has strengthened, even these of us who attempt to do our half. Finally, the battle is sensible, one level or much less makes the distinction and it is tough to outlive right here, extra and extra. The champion is competitors, there are additionally a number of parts that are not yours comparable to luck, failure. During Juve we made 4 finals. and we solely received one whereas the Premier or the competitors is totally different, then the information come out within the 38 video games”.
