Tottenham Hotspurboss Antonio Conte said his team found it difficult to play againstBrighton & Hove Albionafter the death of their fitness coach but Saturdays victory showed he could always count on his squad to rise to the occasion.

Conte was visibly emotional during the minutes applause prior to kickoff while captainHugo Llorisheld up a shirt with Ventrones name to the travelling support following the1-0win that moved Spurs to within three points of the top of the table.

It was a really tough week for us, not only for me -- my staff, players and all the Tottenham environment. He was a person who was in the heart of every single Tottenham person, Conte told the BBC.

It was really tough for us. Tomorrow is the funeral, we will go with the staff. It is very difficult for me to speak about the situation because it is difficult to understand what happened.

At the end, to win a game today against a really strong team like Brighton, it shows that I can count on not only good players but also good men.

Conte had previously worked with Ventrone when the Spurs manager was still a player while the fitness coach was also a member of Marcelo Lippis staff that guidedItalyto the World Cup title in 2006.

He had also worked withJuventus, Catania, JS Suning, Guangzhou Evergrande andAC Ajacciobefore moving to Spurs last year to join Contes staff.

I try to stay very close to his family because I have known them for a long time, Conte added.

Sometimes life is not always positive things. There are bad situations, but at the same time you have to be good to cope with those moments in the right way.
