Tottenham great Hoddle: Levy couldn't have chosen better than Conte

Tottenham great Glenn Hoddle has welcomed the appointment of manager Antonio Conte.

Hoddle, who watched Spurs as a boy and went on to play for them for 12 years, says Conte is the best man for the job and must be given the power – and money – to overhaul the squad.

“I think the appointment was as best as Daniel (Levy, chairman) could have made at that time," he told the PA news agency.

“Out of anyone out there, I don't think you could have picked anyone better if Daniel's attitude has slightly changed now. It must have changed from when he went for him in the summer.

“I think there's a lot of positives here. He is somebody that knows what he wants from a team. He will demand that and he will demand money if it's not working his way.

“I think they're in a really strong position if Daniel knows the circumstances and Conte says, 'Look, if it doesn't work out with certain players, they've got to go. I'll rebuild. And I've done it with other clubs and have been successful'.

“And I think Daniel's got to buy into that now. If that's the case, then yes, we've got the right jockey on the horse."
