Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri believes Chelsea managerial target Antonio Conte will do well, should he complete his move to Stamford Bridge.
Allegri, who was originally linked with the Chelsea job once Jose Mourinho was sacked, reacted to speculation that Conte could be in line to make the move to London.
“Other than a few like Jose Mourinho or Pep Guardiola, Italian coaches are the best in the world,” Allegri said.
“I don’t know what Conte will do, if he will go to Chelsea or not. But if he does, he will do very well.”
Conte, 46, yesterday declared his intention to leave the Italian national team after Euro 2016, and is expected to sign a three-year deal at Stamford Bridge.
