Jurgen Klopp has called Chelsea manager Antonio Conte the “Pep Guardiola of Juventus”.
The former Juventus coach has helped Chelsea to 10 points out of 12 points this season, impressing Klopp.
Klopp was quick to acknowledge the quality of Conte as a coach, as he prepares his own side for Friday’s mouth-watering clash at Stamford Bridge
“He looks quite emotional, even when they don’t score. Obviously he is involved in the game, but that’s not the most important thing,” Klopp said.
“The very important thing is he is a great manager, something like the ‘Pep Guardiola of Juventus’ if you want.
“He created their special type of play and had a very successful time there and with the national team. It is quite impressive what he has done until now, but I don’t play against Antonio Conte.”
