The former Chelsea and Inter Milan boss selected a number of congratulatory messages on his profile after the appointment was confirmed, but clearly did not have the volume turned up when he shared one particular story, as reported by talkSPORT.
The picture showed Conte holding a Spurs shirt aloft with the caption "Good luck @antonioconte", but it cheekily included the chant: "It's Arsenal, Arsenal FC, they're by far the greatest team, the world has ever seen."

The 52-year-old clearly didn't scrutinise the stories he was tagged into after also hilariously publishing one which included grime track called "Body" by Russ Millions and Tion Wayne. In fairness to Conte, there are references to Italy in the lyrics, which say: "Wagwan, what? Spaghetti mafia, yo bad gyal. Shawty, where you from?"
But the serious business begins for Conte when he takes his first match in charge against Vitesse in a Europa Conference League group stages match on Thursday.
Spurs are currently third in the group with 4 points from 3 games and will be targeting a win to take then into the top two qualifying berths.
Conte will be looking to arrest a worrying slide in form which ultimately led to Nuno Espirito Santo's dismissal as head coach. Spurs have lost three of their last four games across all competitions.
