Antonio Conte is literally taking Tottenham to new heights.
All six of his players acquired over the summer.Ivan Perisic,Fraser Forster,Eve Bisma,Richarlison,Clement Lenglet and Djed Spenceis standing over 6 feet tall.
On the other hand,Destiny Udoghieris close at £21 million before Spurs loan him to Serie A side Udinese, but his height is 6 feet 2 inches.
Only 19 years old, he may have grown further by the time he returned to North London a year later.
In both build and stamina, the recent recruit's sheer physicality caught the eye of Ledley King
Former club captain now team It has real strength - in the most literal sense - and the ability to involve the opposing team even before kick-off.
Former England star King (41 years old) said:
"It's a very physical team, and that excites me. I was a somewhat physical defender in my day, so it's great to see a team full of big, strong athletes."
"When you're standing in the tunnel before a game and you look over there and you see a strong team of athletes who can run all day, it definitely makes a difference." Conte said during the preseason tour in South Korea last month that one of his side's goals this season is to make opponents more intimidating.
The Italian player said:
Clearly height isn't everything.
Conte, in evidence to the contrary, said in 2017 that he won the Premier League title with Chelsea, the diminutive Eden he Hazard and N'Golo he starred in how Kante was a star. It is enough to see if
Meanwhile, Aaron Lennon (5ft5ins), Steed Mulblanc (5ft6ins) and Robbie Keane (5ft9ins) will start alongside King in the 2008 League Cup final as Spurs win the final trophy. contributed to
Yet England's top league is often said to be the most physical league in the world.
So having big, powerful athletes out there that can only help.
Indeed, the XI, which the Spurs are likely to pick first this season, has no player under six feet.
Skipper Hugo Lloris (6ft2ins) is lined up in goal in a team that SunSport believe could be Conte's mainstay this season. Cristian Romero (6ft1ins), Eric Dier (6ft2ins) and Langre (6ft1ins) make up the three-man defense. Matt Dougherty (6ft1ins), Rodrigo Bentancourt (6ft2ins), Pierre-Emile Hoybjerg (6ft1ins), Ivan Perisic (6ft1ins) in midfield, Dejan Kulusevski (6ft1ins), Harry Kane (6ft2ins), Son Heung-min (6ft2ins) devastating front 3.
The players the Spurs are considering off-road, coincidentally or not, are Tanguy Ndombele, Gio Lo Celso, Harry Winks and Sergio Reguilon, all under 6 feet.
If Bryan Gill is also sent out on loan perhaps to Valencia, Ben He Davis (5ft11ins), Ryan Sessegnon (5ft10ins) and Lucas Moura (5ft8ins) will remain the only relatively petite characters on the team. It will be.
His January acquisitions of Bentancourt and Krussevski proved pivotal in Spurs' qualification to the Champions League last season.
Neither seemed to take long to adapt to the Premier League, so they were a real bonus.
Meanwhile, King encourages other newcomers to make a similar swift impact.
The former centre-back and current club ambassador added:
``Perisic is experienced and has played at the highest level. They know the level expected and should be fine.
"Langre is a left-sided centre-half and right now it's important to balance left-handers and right-handers in defense.
"Maybe in my day it didn't matter that much. I'm right-handed and played left-handed my whole career.76} "I don't know if we can get it done now with a focus on playing from behind." 77 78 The Spurs started the season by beating Southampton 4–1.
On Sunday, they travel to Conte's old team, Chelsea. This would show how much they have progressed under their former Inter Milan boss.
King added: "The most important thing is to get off to a good start.
"Believe it or not, there hasn't been a season where we don't believe we can win the league if we start the season right.
"We always had enough players. Let's start the season well and see where we are."
