Tottenham have confirmed six appointments to new manager Antonio Conte’s coaching staff, including a permanent first-team role for Ryan Mason.
Mason spent six weeks as interim manager last season following the sacking of Jose Mourinho and won four of his seven Premier League games in charge, securing Europa Conference League qualification on the final day of the campaign.
The 30-year-old former Spurs midfielder will now be a permanent member of Conte’s backroom team and is the only one of the six appointments that has been promoted from within.
The club has additionally confirmed that Conte and his incoming staff have all received the relevant work permits in time to take charge of Thursday’s Conference League match against Vitesse Arnhem.
Cristian Stellini joins as Conte’s assistant manager. He first worked with the new Spurs boss at Juventus a decade ago and was part of the staff at Inter last season as the club won Serie A.
Conte’s brother Gianluca takes up a position as technical and analytics coach, having worked with him in every role, while Coratti, Ventrone and Bruno join as fitness coaches.
Conte has yet to appoint a goalkeeping coach.
The new boss and his Italian staff will be in the dugout for Thursday’s Europa Conference League game with Vitesse Arnhem after being given work permits.
The 52-year-old has had to observe the first two training sessions since his appointment and was also unable to do a pre-match press conference on Wednesday as the paperwork had not gone through.
