Former Juventus player, Andrea Pirlo has labelled Antonio Conte as a genius and one of the best.
Chelsea was abysmal last season in their title defence under Mourinho, but the blues are currently top of the log, 10 points clear with 11 games left in the season.
Pirlo won three scudetto titles under Conte at Juventus and he says his approach to the game, puts him in a different class than his peers.
“Conte, for me, is the best coach because he’s a genius,” the New York City midfielder told Omnisport.
“”He works every day, every single moment for soccer, for the team, every small detail and on the field, the players play very good.
“With Juventus, I was with this coach for three years. We won the league, but every day was stronger in training. Maybe now it’s the same at Chelsea.”
