After 61 years of service, Tottenham’s strength and conditioning coach Gian Piero Ventrone has passed away.

Tottenham is struggling to deal with the loss of fitness coach Gian Piero Ventrone. Leukemia struck the 61-year-old Neapolitan known as “The Marine” for his rigorous training sessions.

We are deeply saddened to share the news of Gian Piero Ventrone’s passing with you today,” Tottenham said in a statement on Thursday morning. Gian Piero was an instant hit with the team because he was as likable off the field as he was demanding on it. Everyone at the club mourns his passing and sends their condolences to his family and friends.

Having joined Antonio Conte’s coaching staff at Spurs in November of 2017, Ventrone has been credited with inspiring a dramatic improvement in the players’ overall fitness. On the club’s pre-season tour to Seoul, he pushed the team through a brutal session in 30C heat, leaving many of them collapsed on the turf and some, including Harry Kane, throwing up.

The players recognized the value of his efforts and held him in the highest regard, as evidenced by Son Heung-decision min’s to include him in his postgame celebration following his hat trick against Leicester City on September 17.
