Tottenham signing Kulusevski excited to work with 'winner' Conte

Tottenham signing Dejan Kulusevski can't wait to get started working under Antonio Conte.

The Sweden international has joined Spurs from Juventus on an 18-month loan, while fellow Bianconeri star Rodrigo Bencantur has also moved to north London.

Kulusevski played against Conte when he was managing Inter Milan and praised the Italian's winning mentality.

"I'm looking forward to working with the coach, I know him from Inter," Kulusevski said.

"He's a very good coach, he's a winner and that's what I want to be. I'm very happy that he's here, and it's part of why I came here.

"I'm going to listen to him, he knows what he's talking about and I know that his teams are always working really hard. That's what I love.

"I want to learn as much as possible with him and collaborate with the players here."
