Antonio Conte Makes Social Media Blunder After Sharing Arsenal Chant On Instagram

Antonio Conte was confirmed as Tottenham Hotspur's new head coach on Tuesday, but the Italian has already scored an own goal after sharing an Instagram story that contained an Arsenal chant.

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.

Arguably a bigger test faces the north Londoners on Sunday, as they face Everton in a Premier League clash at Goodison Park.

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.

The Italian certainly brings a winning mentality to the club, after securing four Serie A titles and one Premier League crown during his previous spells at Juventus, Inter Milan and Chelsea.
