Antonio Conte to take charge of Tottenham against Vitesse Arnhem in Europa Conference League after securing visa

ANTONIO CONTE is set to take charge of Tottenham in the Europa Conference League after securing his visa.

The Italian will be in the hot seat for the visit of Vitesse Arnhem after being given the green light to work in the UK.

He was appointed Spurs boss on Tuesday after the north London club sacked the under-fire Nuno Espirito Santo.

The 52-year-old has been handed a whopping £15million-a-year deal to take over at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

And with the paperwork now complete, he will lead his new side in Thursday’s European outing.

Nuno was given his marching orders on Monday following a drab 3-0 defeat by Manchester United.

A bright start to the season had turned sour, with Spurs suffering five Premier League defeats already this term.

And an embarrassing 1-0 loss to Vitesse in their last European outing did the Portuguese no favours.

He selected an entirely second-string side for last month’s trip to the Netherlands in order to rest senior players for domestic action.

Conte will be looking for an immediate improvement after spending the past couple of days watching training.

He was not allowed to lead a session while he waited for his work permit to come through.

With that in place, SunSport understands the ex-Chelsea boss will be backed in the January transfer market.

Chairman Daniel Levy is ready to open the taps on a £150m war chest to bring in new players.
