My calm behavior is part of a strategy, says Conte

My calm behavior is part of a strategy, says Conte 

Antonio Conte - usually such a demonstrative presence on the sidelines - has been noticeably calmer during recent matches, but the Tottenham boss insists his behavior is not representative of any off-field frustrations.

Ahead of the north London derby on Sunday - live on Sky Sports - Conte said: "You have to ask the referee or the fourth [official] if I was calm in the game against Chelsea. I think he would be surprised about this question! 

"Also this is a strategy because I can drive the car, but sometimes the driver must stay seated and calm. I think it’s part of a process to give more responsibility to our players. 

"If I want to force myself to live the game in another way it will be very difficult, but sometimes I have to stay seated and leave my players to make the best decision and face the game during the difficulty. 

"But I am strong and I will be very strong until the end of the season."
