Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola is excited to play Chelsea manager Antonio Conte for the first time and he believes Conte is one of the best managers in the world.
“Conte one of the best coaches in the world right now,” said the City boss. “It is the first time we are going to face each other. It’s good to play against him.
“He made an exceptional job in Turin and in the national job. It doesn’t matter if it is Serie A or the national team, you realise his strengths.
“He has started here with maybe not good results, but they have won last seven games, conceding one goal. That says a lot about how good they are.
“They were contenders to win the Premier League from the beginning. Now, maybe more than before. It’s a good test for us.”
