Antonio Conte made a name for himself as a top manager after successively winning 3 Serie A titles with Juventus and these achievements played a huge role in allowing Conte getting recognized as someone who can win significant titles and be in charge of big squads.
After Conte’s time with Juventus was over, he opted to become the new manager of the Italian national football team as he replaced Cesare Prandelli who had resigned from his managerial position in the national side.
During Conte’s charge in the Italian side, he managed to lead Italy to the top of their group which was the first time that they had managed to do it in a major tournament since the 2006 World Cup and Italy was eventually knocked out in the quarter-finals after losing against Germany in a penalty session.
The latest managerial position of Antonio Conte is with the Premier League side Chelsea and the experienced tactician is the man that was selected to rescue the English outfit from their previous disappointing season where they finished at the 10th spot of the English League.
Conte is regarded as a top class manager and this is why he was the man chosen to bring back the glory days of Chelsea but the Italian coach himself has stated that the task of winning the Premier League title or even snatching a European position will be a difficult one and that there is a big risk of seeing them underperform once again unless the necessary changes and steps are properly taken.
“My experience in my career as a player and a manager teach me if you want to reach a good target, if you want to fight for the title, you must be a team. You must be a team inside and outside of the pitch. It’s very important and it’s important to understand this and transfer this thought on the players because we must become like a family and I think this is the key to switch, compared to last season. If we understand this, we can switch. If we don’t understand this, it’s not good.” Chelsea’s Antonio Conte said after facing off against Real Madrid and losing 2-3.
