The assistant manager of Tottenham Hotspur, Cristian Stellini, had maintained a 100% winning record after defeating Chelsea by 2-0.
The 48-year-old Tottenham’s assistant manager has won four matches in four games in the absence of Antonio Conte, who is currently suffering from cholecystitis, had surgery, and he’s recovering.
In his first time in charge of Tottenham, the assistant manager helped his club defeat Olympic Marseille by 2-1 to qualify for the next round of the Champions League on November 1, 2022.
Tottenham defeated Manchester City by a goal to nil. It was a surprising defeat, and Stellini was credited for his tactical action and for caging Pep Guardiola’s boys.
When Conte returned, Tottenham lost heavily to Leicester City in the Premier League.
It was one of the club’s biggest defeats in the Premier League this season.
When Stellini came back to take charge of the team, Tottenham defeated West Ham 2-0, sending the hammers into the relegation zone.
He also ended Chelsea’s dominant run at Tottenham’s home. The last time Tottenham defeated Chelsea was in 2018.
The Blue Side of London has always been ahead of Spurs in previous matches.
Stellini’s 100 percent win had superseded Conte’s winning record of 56 percent at Tottenham.
However, the assistant manager had to give credit to the manager for impacting the team and making it easy for him to continue his legacy.
Conte’s experience and style have helped the team succeed.
Stellini is expecting Conte to return to the squad this week, and he is currently at home.
Tottenham striker Harry Kane speaks about the manager’s absence after the Chelsea match.
He claimed he knew the manager was feeling well and would be jumping in the living room after Tottenham defeated Chelsea at their new stadium.
