Big Blow: chelsea boss Antonio Conte hit out at former club, claims they are too big for Serie A

Following the recent change of formation to 3-4-3 and the success the Blues have achieved, Chelsea Boss Antonio Conte have received most of the praise for transforming his team.

Speaking to Italian newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, the Italian tactician claimed his former team Juvetus have outgrown their domestic title Seria A and that the Old Lady should be aiming for European title in the nearest future.

“When you have the eighth-highest wage bill in the world, you need to be looking beyond Serie A,” Conte, told Gazzetta dello Sport.

“Juventus have made huge investments and this places the club in an international dimension.

“When you have a squad like Juve’s current one, then you have got to have high objectives. Nothing can be taken for granted in Europe, but when your rivals sell you [Gonzalo] Higuain and [Miralem] Pjanic, it all becomes easy.”

The Boss led the Serie A side to three consecutive league title before stepping down to take on another challenge as Italy coach in 2014.

Conte further continued by saying:

“When you have the eighth-highest wage bill in the world, you need to be looking beyond Serie A,”
“Juventus have made huge investments and this places the club in an international dimension.

“When you have a squad like Juve’s current one, then you have got to have high objectives. Nothing can be taken for granted in Europe, but when your rivals sell you [Gonzalo] Higuain and [Miralem] Pjanic, it all becomes easy.”

The Italian club led by Massimiliano Allegri has also won the Serie A title for two consecutive seasons now and are already seven points clear at the top of the table.

We however hope the Old Lady boss Allegri will take these comments as a challenge and not as a criticism from Chelsea boss.
