ANTONIO CONTE’s attention to detail has been labelled ‘unreal’ after ordering the touchline to be groomed by hand.
Ahead of Tottenham’s Premier League clash on Sunday against Leeds, groundsman could be seen on their hands and knees attending to the grass.

Reporter Geoff Shreeves shared a video of it happening to Twitter with the caption: “We know Antonio Conte is big on detail but this is unreal!
“Sideline being groomed by hand.”
An equally sharp-looking Conte later charged up and down the same touchline as Spurs fought from a goal behind to secure their first league win under the Italian.
Dan James handed Leeds a first half Lead, temporarily lifting them up to 14th.
But two second half strikes from Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg and Sergio Reguilon completed the turnaround, and sent Leeds tumbling back down to 17th.
The 52-year-old punched the air as the final whistle went and hugged every single one of his players.
Match-winner Reguilon revealed what his manager said to the team at half-time after the game.
The Spaniard said: “I’m the happiest person in the world – it’s my first goal in the Premier League and we got three points.
“The gaffer wants me to keep arriving in the box – arrive, arrive, arrive – and also defend. I’m dead but I’m so happy.
“Leeds started really well. At half-time the gaffer told us to go man to man and we did.
“We lost the first half but we had the mentality of a big team and we got the three points… [wheezes] I’m sorry, I’m dead…
“We knew we had to give more [when Spurs were booed off at half-time].
“The gaffer told us we had to play with passion and two balls*. We got three points and we continue!”
