Reporter Park Jae-ho = Head coach Christian Stellini (48) talked about tactics against Manchester City. He revealed that he made some changes while following Antonio Conte’s (53) coach’s tactics.
Tottenham won 1-0 in the home game against Manchester City in the 22nd round of the ‘2022/23 season English Premier League (EPL)’ held at Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in London, England on the 6th (Korean time).
It was a significant victory. This is because the points were won without manager Conte, who had to leave due to cholecystitis surgery. In addition, Tottenham was running an uneasy race with 2 wins, 2 draws and 1 loss in 5 league matches before this game. He was able to aim for a rebound by capturing league powerhouse Man City.

On the same day, according to British media ‘Football London’, Coach Stellini was asked, ‘How much did your tactics reflect against Manchester City?’
Coach Stellini said: “We knew how Manchester City would play. They play high-possession football with a lot of passing. In response, we played very aggressively.”
“I was a bit surprised that Manchester City put Bernardo Silva in the number 10 role under the two tops. We pressed from the front to prevent them from counterattacking. This was the best thing we did against Man City.”
Coach Stellini said, “The tactics against Man City are something Conte has been doing for a long time. I’ve worked with him for a long time, so there was nothing difficult.” He continued, “I made a change, however. During the game, I continued to talk with coach Ryan Mason,” he said. “I ordered central defender Eric Dier to press hard on Bernardo Silva.”
He also shared the joys and difficulties he felt while acting as manager. He said, “It was fun, but at the same time, I felt a lot of responsibility. Being a manager requires experience and passion. It was a good experience.”
