Italian legend Andrea Pirlo has hailed former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte as the best manager he worked with.

Pirlo is familiar with Antonio Conte, as he worked under the Italian manager at Juventus and the Italy national team.

During his illustrious playing career, the deep lying playmaker played under many top class managers but has picked Conte as the best he featured under.

According to Pirlo, Conte is obsessed with winning that he becomes a demon when he loses.

He said: “They’ll fight for the Scudetto to the end. Conte forces you to give your best at all times, more than you even thought you had. He is obsessed with victory, so when he loses, he becomes a demon. You daren’t speak to him. Conte is the best coach I ever worked with, every day he showed us 40-50 minute video sessions. It’s because of him that I started considering the idea of becoming a coach myself.”

Chelsea fans easily warmed up to Conte, and he won the Premier League and FA Cup in his two years in England.

Conte has now improved Inter Milan, and the Italian side are battling Juventus for the Serie A title this season.
