Gianluigi Buffon knows a lot about Chelsea manager Antonio Conte after working under Conte during his time at Juventus as manager.
Conte won three consecutive Serie A title as head coach of Juventus before he left Juventus in 2014.
Buffon has revealed he isn’t surprised with Chelsea’s progress under Antonio Conte because Conte doesn’t do second.
“It doesn’t surprise me at all that Chelsea are top of the Premier League. He [Conte] is a winner, he doesn’t do second place,” Buffon told Fox Sports.
“I am sure behind the scenes he has privately been getting players into line.
“They have a great chance in the league. Not only do they have one of the best coaches in Europe – but not competing in Europe, they have a week between games which is going to help them a lot as the season goes on.”
