Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has hailed Chelsea’s new signing Davide Zappacosta as a player with the right characteristics.
Conte also admitted it’s easier for Zappacosta to adapt to his style of football because he has worked with Zappacosta while he was boss of the Italian national team.
“He played against Israel, shows he is in good condition,” Conte said.
“I worked with him and he knows my style of football. For him it is more simple for him to adapt our style.”
Conte also revealed Zappacosta can play as a left wing-back.
“He is a good player, a young player. He can improve. He is a wing back, sometimes he can play on the left.
“He is ready and you will see very soon his performance. This is a great chance, he arrives in a great club and can go into this club with the right mentality.
“Torino is a good team with a great history. There is good pressure there, but to play in another country is not easy. But he has the right characteristics.”
