Why Chelsea want Antonio Conte as Man United next coach



Antonio Conte

Man Utd coach, Jose Mourinho is at the edge of losing his job at Old Trafford, which comes three years after he was sacked as Chelsea manager.

A report from Old Trafford made it known that the Red Devils were planning to replace the Portugal international with former Real Madrid coach, Zinedine Zidane.

Another fine option on the list is former Chelsea coach, Antonio Conte, who was axed by the Blues last season.

Conte during his stay at Stamford Bridge won a Premier League trophy and a FA cup.

He was the most preferred candidate Sir Alex Ferguson wanted as the Red Devils coach after his retirement but Conte at that time had refused the offer and David Moyes was brought on board instead.

A recent report have made it known that Chelsea want Antonio Conte to take over from Jose Mourinho as Man Utd coach.

This will help them reduce the compensation of £9 million they are yet to pay the Italian should he return to football management.

However, ESPN pundit, Gabriele Marcotti made it known that Antonio Conte cannot replace Jose Mourinho as the duo have the same management skill.

He hinted that what Man Utd need is a new coach who is different entirely.
