Conte on Kulusevski
Now, ahead of Tottenham’s meeting with West Ham, Antonio Conte has been speaking about Kulusevski.
When doing so, the Italian explained why the winger is already so important to Spurs:
“Honestly, we are talking about an important prospect, because he is very young, only 21-years-old and despite his young age he has good experience with the national team,” he said. “Also to play with Juventus for one year and a half, you understand what it means to live with pressure, with that pressure.
“We are talking about an important prospect. Probably he could explode in the future. Also because I can see the intensity, the will and the desire to play. As everyday in training sessions he is a type of player who has it in his mind the target to become a top player in his career and as his manager I try to help him to improve and believe.
“For sure is he an important prospect for the present and for the future. He has to continue to work in this way because he has in one month and a half improved a lot physically, tactically and also in his mentality.”
