Antonio Conte says he will relish the pressure of his return to work, but called on Tottenham to embrace their season-defining moment against AC Milan on Wednesday.

Tottenham manager Antonio Conte has returned to London after spending the last two-and-a-half weeks recuperating in Turin with his family following surgery to remove his gallbladder last month.

The 53-year-old returns with Spurs reeling after exiting the FA Cup last week following their loss to Wolves on Saturday to damage their hopes of another top-four finish.

“The pressure? We live for this type of game, we live for this type of moment because when the pressure is going up, it means your level is going up,” said the Spurs boss.

“Don’t forget last season we play Conference League and instead this season we are playing Champions League. We won our group, the first leg we lost 1-0 and we have possibility tomorrow to beat Milan and then to go to the next round.

“I think for sure don’t forget the past and to understand we need to have step by step to improve the situation. Then if you ask me do I want to win the Champions League? I tell you yes but then there is reality.

“We have to be ready to go game by game. Tomorrow the obstacle is Milan and we have to beat them with two goals if we want to go to the next round. The pressure is normal and we have to live with this type of pressure.

“Maybe if there is one thing that we have to try to improve, the whole environment here, is to live with the pressure. To live with the pressure means to sometimes be a bit stressed and not always to be in peace with yourself, but to stress yourself and to put pressure in a positive way.

“I think that in this aspect we can improve a lot and the whole environment can improve a lot about this aspect.”
