Tottenham boss Conte: I have great respect for Amorim

Tottenham boss Antonio Conte says he has a lot of respect for Sporting CP coach Ruben Amorim.

Spurs are in Lisbon for tonight’s Champions League clash.

Conte said, “I have great respect for Amorim, who is proving to be a great coach. He is young, but he has good ideas and the team is very good.

“They won the League after many years and that shows that the work has been fantastic.

“It’s always difficult to play against Portugal’s big three. We have great respect and we know the game will be very tough. However, this is the Champions League and we know that we have to compete against the best teams in the world.”
