Antonio Conte was left red-faced as he was bizarrely given a Manchester United shirt with his name on the back, Goal reports.
This all happened in the Chelsea head coach’s press conference on Thursday as a fellow Italian in Le Iene co-presenter Stefano Corti pranked him.
After presenting Conte with the jersey, Corti played a message via tablet from his partner from the Italian show.

With serious matters such as keeping his job at Chelsea by improving results, this isn’t ideal for Conte’s public image.
Thankfully, the prank was all in good heart.
