The interim boss has replaced Antonio Conte ahead of a crucial run of fixtures.

Cristian Stellini has insisted taking charge at Tottenham wouldn’t require a different mindset from him.

An explosive post-match interview convinced the Spurs to part ways with Antonio Conte earlier this week. The club are reportedly considering several replacements for the Italian boss.

Until then, however, they will play under Stellini as their interim boss. A number of observers have speculated the 48-year-old might be able to continue his job until the summer if the Spurs get back on track in the top-four race.

“Nothing has to change in my mind. I’m not here for vanity. I’m here to help the club,” Stellini said on Friday (via Fabrizio Romano).

“I have to be myself. I use myself, my character. We will see what happens during the process.”

Stellini has taken charge at Tottenham ahead of the final weeks of the season. Following their eliminations at cup competitions under Conte, Spurs hope to salvage their campaign by securing a top-four finish.

Stellini’s men will take on Everton at Goodison Park in their first game after the international break. The Spurs will then meet Brighton in the Premier League on April 8.
