During the Chelsea Pitch Owners dinner last Thursday, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte revealed to Chelsea legend Pat Nevin that Diego Maradona was the best player he played against.
“I did promise to ask some questions that readers of this column sent in last week and I can confirm that Maradona was his favourite player to play against and also the best,” Nevin wrote on Chelsea’s Official Website.
“Zinedine Zidane got a special smile when I asked about team-mates but there were many more greats he wanted to mention.”
Conte also revealed to Nevin that he is unlikely to hide his passion during games any time soon.
“Also he underlined he is unlikely to hide his passion during the games any time soon, he doesn’t want to and doesn’t think he could suppress it anyway. “
