Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte has been branded as a master by Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola, Goal reports.
Conte did a fantastic job in leading the Blues to the Premier League title last season, with the unique formation of playing three at the back.
However, this season has been a rollercoaster for the Italian as his future at the Blues in on a needle thread. Chelsea being two points shy of being back in the top four along with tension with the board has put plenty of pressure on Conte.
When speaking after City’s 3-0 win over Arsenal, Guardiola commended what Conte has achieved in the past in his managerial career, as Goal reports.
Goal quotes Guardiola saying:
“He did amazingly in the national team with Italy and with Juventus. I think Conte is going to give something to English football, I am pretty sure about that. Tactically he is a master.”
Conte and Guardiola will come face to face this Sunday as Chelsea travel to the league leaders in need of a win.
