Antonio Conte has very specific sex rules for Tottenham players

A tactical mindset both on and off the pitch

Antonio Conte has been appointed as the new Tottenham Hotspur manager on Tuesday morning after they sacked Nuno Espirito Santo on an 18-month deal.

But while we all speculate about what players will play where and whether we are about to see him transform Lucas Moura into the best right wing-back in the league, Conte has his own plans to revolutionise the club.

Anyone who is familiar to Conte’s style will know that he is regimented in his ways. He has set policies and it appears that also wants certain rules implemented off the pitch too.

During his time at Inter Milan, the Italian did an interview with French outlet L’Equipe in which he talked about the importance of his players limiting the amount of physical work on their bodies, in particular, in the bedroom.

Conte spoke of how he actively encourages his players to make sure their wives to ‘go on top’ so that there is no pressure on them to perform in the run up to big matches.

He said: “I explain to the players how they should have sex … in the periods of competition, the intercourse should not last long and they should be on the bottom.

“During spells of matches the players should not have sexual relations that last for long periods.

“They need to make as little effort as possible. The best position for them is if their partners go on top.

“And it is preferable that they are with their own wives. That way they are not obliged to put in an exceptional performance.”

His advice clearly works given he has plenty of accolades to showcase that his method is a reliable one. Conte also isn’t the only other world class manager to have the same mindset.

Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola also feels the same saying that it’s “impossible to play good football if you don’t make sex with your partner.”

If Spurs suddenly have another downturn in form this season, we’ll know the reasons why.
