Antonio Conte agrees to Andrea Pirlo’s comments of not accepting errors in the course of a football game, during their time together at Juventus.
Conte is widely known for his passion for the game and his attention to detail during a game.
His teams have usually looked rock solid, robust and efficient enough to seal victories regardless of the opposition, with Pirlo revealing to Football Italia, the manner in which Conte’s teams get through games, is as a result of the Italian tactician’s “allergy to errors”.
Conte, speaking to GQ Magazine’s Alastair Campbell, agreed to his former midfielder’s assertion about him, and confesses he hates to make mistakes during a football game, as it will be too late to clean up afterwards.
I try to avoid all mistakes. I try to prepare my players and to put them in the best condition to play the game. If you discover a problem during the game it is too late. You must anticipate and prepare.

Chelsea fans will hope Conte remembers his old ways while at Juventus as his side suffers a blip in form after two successive defeats in the Premier League this season.
If the former Italy manager is still in tune with his error allergies, then Chelsea’s players are in for a treat following the latest defeat to Crystal Palace.
