ANTONIO CONTE comes in with an impressive transfer spend per point record at Tottenham.
The former Chelsea boss averages £412,000 each spent on transfers, with a significantly lower net spend than some of his competitors at fellow big clubs.
talkSports Simon Jordan crunches the numbers, and the Italian compares Manchester United’s Ole Gunnar Solskjaer to ‘bang for the buck’.
Solskjaer’s average net spend over the past few seasons has been £147million, while Conte’s work is around £46m per season.
Conte’s transfer spend is just a million less than Solskjaer’s £1.4m per point.
Despite topping the list of net spends and money spent per point, Solskjaer is yet to win a trophy with Man Utd.
And they are under increasing pressure to turn United’s season around.
Pep Guardiola spends around £667,000 a point at Manchester City, leaving him behind Solskjaer.

And the defending Premier League champions have a net worth of £108 million per season.
Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool are at the bottom of the list, impressively scoring one point for every £243,000 spent.
The Reds’ net expenses are also the lowest of the four clubs, coming in at a respectable £28m.
Conte is able to deliver results with a much lower cost as per the numbers.
Spurs are without a trophy in 13 years, something that Conte wants to change.
On his appointment, he said: “I am extremely pleased to return to coaching and do so at a Premier League club that has the ambition to be a hero again.
“Tottenham Hotspur has state-of-the-art facilities and is one of the best stadiums in the world.
“I can’t wait to start working on conveying to the team and fans the passion, mindset and determination that have always distinguished me as a player and a coach.
“We didn’t reunite last summer because the end of my relationship with Inter was still too recent and also emotionally attached to the end of the season, so I felt it was not the right time to return to coaching .
“But Danielle Levy’s infectious enthusiasm and determination to entrust me with this task had already made an impression. Now that the opportunity is back, I have decided to take it with confidence.”
