Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has guided Chelsea to the top of the Premier League table within months of being at Chelsea and Chelsea winger Willian, who worked under Conte and Mourinho, revealed Conte is more of a motivator than Jose Mourinho.
“Antonio Conte always works hard with us,” Willian said as quoted by Daily Express.
“He prepares us precisely about every opposing side, so we can go into each game with the correct plan.
“He has different training methods to Jose Mourinho, and a different philosophy of football.
“He is more of a motivator than Jose, and expects us to play at full throttle.
“Mourinho is a terrific manager as well – he has won lots of trophies with Chelsea – but now Conte is continuing his good work.
“When a new manager comes in it is always difficult to transform everything and be successful straight away. Things did not go perfectly for us at first.
“But in time our results got better, and we had that incredible run of wins.”
