Liverpool legend Steve Nicol has revealed his top five managers in world football and while he left out Jose Mourinho, he named Chelsea manager Antonio Conte as the third best.
The Liverpool hero named Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp as the fifth on the list, followed by Pep Guardiola of Manchester City. Former Chelsea manager and current Bayern Munich boss Carlo Ancelotti is second on the list with Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane topping the list.
Antonio Conte surprised the football world as he led Chelsea to the title after a poor start to the season and a woeful campaign before that.
The Italian won three Manager of the Month awards in the Premier League last season – a rare feat indeed.
