When it comes to class, maturity and being a gentleman, Antonio Conte has got it all.
The Chelsea boss has been attacked many times (for no reason) by former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho, but the Italian has told the fans to respect the work the Portuguese did during his time at the club.
“I think Jose Mourinho wrote a good part of the history of Chelsea,” Conte said. “He won a lot with the players. He did a great job here in Chelsea. It’s important, always, not to forget this.
“I have great respect for him because he’s a winner. I like his mentality. He has a winning mentality. For sure, he’s one of the best in the world and, here, he did a great job. I think every single fan must respect him.
“Would I like to write a history like him and leave like a hero? In the future, I hope so. His history with Chelsea was great. I know very well he’s in the heart of Chelsea’s fans. It’s great this because he deserves it. For sure, I hope in the future to emulate his wins here.”
