Tottenham Hotspur fans have previously appreciated their new head coach Antonio Conte in other matches.

But this was the first time the entire stadium unanimously sang his name in unison, clearly into the evening air.

The Italian manager looked genuinely touched and, on both occasions, turned to all four corners of the ground and applauded.

At the final whistle, upon winning 3-0 with the home fans’ support, Conte again applauded all corners of the huge stadium.

Having heard his name ringing out on Sunday afternoon, Conte admitted that while it was a lovely sound.

“Honestly, first of all I want to say thanks to all the fans that sung my name,” he said.

“On one hand, I’m very happy, very enthusiastic for this. On the other hand, I feel a lot of responsibility towards our fans.

“I think they trust a lot in my work and to listen my name it was good, also because I have just arrived only one month I’ve been here and for sure I have this responsibility to deserve this and maybe it is too early.”

Along with this, after the match, the Spurs coach said he wants to truly earn this level of fans’ affection: “I want to show in the future I deserve this. I think the good result helps you, but I want to deserve if the fans decide to sing my name for my work, for my involvement in this club, in this situation.”

For this fans’ display and love to have come in only his fourth Premier League match is an indication of how quickly his passionate antics and strategies, leading to several wins, have reignited the fanbase and secondly just how much the supporters needed to trust a manager again.
