Italian football legend Andrea Pirlo, who this morning announced he will retire from football when his New York City contract expires in December, learnt a lot under current Chelsea boss Antonio Conte, who worked with him at Juventus and the Italian national team.
Speaking during an exclusive interview for Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport, the former Inter, Juventus and Milan midfielder claimed:
“His attention to detail is impressive,” he told about the Blues boss.
“He also manages to give you convincing explanations about things.
“One of his 20-minute video sessions is worth three days on the training ground”
“You immediately understand what it is you have to do.”
Speaking about Conte’s first season at Juventus, who ended with a title for the Bianconeri after ten years, Pirlo said:
“Over the year he improved, with his desire to win and doing everything to the best of his ability.
“He is one of the best, absolutely.”
