Juventus boss Max Allegri is confident “Antonio Conte will certainly do well on the Chelsea bench” next season.
Allegri had originally been tipped for the role, but is under contract with Juve until June 2017 and showed no intention of leaving Turin.
Now all reports suggest Italy manager Conte has already agreed terms to take over at Stamford Bridge after Euro 2016.
“Italian Coaches are the best in the world,” Allegri told Rai Sport last night.
“This is why Conte will certainly do well on the Chelsea bench.”
