Tottenham Hotspur 3-2 Vitesse: Antonio Conte wins first game since taking charge of Spurs

Antonio Conte says that a "bit of patience" will be required after he was given a highly eventful introduction to life as Tottenham Hotspur's new manager in their Europa Conference League victory over Vitesse.

In a match that saw Spurs reduced to 10 men and the Dutch Eredivisie side to nine, Spurs threatened to throw away an early three-goal lead before eventually scrambling over the line.

It was a far cry from the organisation and solidity that characterised his title-winning teams at Juventus, Chelsea and Inter Milan.

"In my opinion and my mind there is a lot of space for improvement for this team, in every single player," Conte told BT Sport.
