Former Scotland manager Gordon Strachan believes Antonio Conte is a better manager than Maurizio Sarri due to the number of trophies Conte won at Juventus and Chelsea.
“Antonio Conte is a top manager with top results at Juventus and Chelsea,” Strachan said on Sky Sports’ The Debate.
“So if Conte says ‘don’t have tomato sauce’, it doesn’t matter, because what he’s doing is bringing trophies everywhere he goes.
“That’s just his personality.
“If you watched him as a football player, he wasn’t the world’s greatest footballer but he was all over the place and he stood up against anybody.
“Now people are turning round and saying ‘Sarri is the best manager because they can have tomato sauce or the kids can come in’.
“Conte is a top, top manager so nobody should think that they’re getting an even better manager this season.
“I don’t think he is [better than Conte] but I’m telling you now Conte is a top manager.”
