It’s looking increasingly likely that Antonio Conte will be the man tasked with re-floating Chelsea’s capsized luxury liner next season, with the Italy coach having held several rounds of talks with the club’s top brass over the past couple of weeks.
Having played under him at Juventus for several years, hirsute pass-master Andrea Pirlo was wheeled out and asked what the Chelsea gang can expect with Conte at the helm.
While generally singing his former gaffer’s praises, Pirlo also warned that Conte has something of the devil about him too, telling the Daily Mirror :
I love the man, I have nothing but respect and admiration for him. I know if he takes a job, any job, it will have to be on his terms.
