Italy forward Graziano Pelle believes Antonio Conte will be a success in the Premier League if he is confirmed as Chelsea’s next permanent manager.
Antonio Conte is expected to succeed Chelsea interim boss Guus Hiddink at Stamford Bridge, having announced his intention to leave his role as Italy coach following the 2016 European Championships in France.
It was first reported in February that Antonio Conte is expected to sign a three-year deal to take over at Chelsea and, all being well, will become the 10th manager of the Roman Abramovich-era.
“The coach has the qualities to do well in any tournament. If he does choose to come to the Premier League then he’ll be very welcome,” Pelle told Rai Sport.
“It’s a tough League, but I am convinced Conte will do well. The English press is really hard when it comes to gossip, but on that score I don’t think the coach has anything to worry about. When it comes to talking about football, I think Italian media might be tougher, but it’s only to be expected in the sport.”
