Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola has hailed Antonio Conte as a tactical master ahead of Sunday’s clash between Chelsea and Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium.
Guardiola believes Conte’s outstanding contribution to English football will only be appreciated when he’s left Chelsea.
“What Antonio has done here in the Premier League, maybe the people don’t realise,” said Guardiola.
“He introduced another way to attack with five at the back, another system, a lot of teams, even Arsenal, had to do a lot of imitating to do that.
“Tactically he is a master, he did it amazingly with Italy and when he went to Turin (with Juventus). I think Conte is going to leave, going to give something to English football. I’m sure of that.”
