Paulo Ferreira backed Antonio Conte to continue being successful
During his 1st season in charge of Chelsea, Antonio Conte has been able to push the English club to the top of the Premier League and in a very dominating form.
Lifting the domestic title of England is something significantly difficult for any manager to do and it´s even more impressive for a manager who is making his debut in a league and in a club where he has never competed ever before.
Despite being a newcomer in the Premier League, Antonio Conte overcame every obstacle that he had in his path and was the main tactician behind Chelsea´s coronation as the new champions of England.
Paulo Ferreira is a former Chelsea player who helped the English club in winning the UEFA Champions League back in the season of 2011-12. The Portuguese made his last appearance as a professional football player on May of 2013 as he decided to retire and later went on to become a club ambassador of Chelsea as well as an assistant loan player technical coach.
Even though Ferreira is not an actual player anymore in Stamford Bridge, he is still working internally and knows everything that is going on in relation to Chelsea and Paulo Ferreira has recently talked about the impact that Antonio Conte has made since arriving to Stamford Bridge as well as also voicing his thoughts concerning the future of the Italian manager.
“It’s massive for a manager to come to the best League in the world and, like Mourinho did, win the title in his first season. Can he build something similar to what Jose did and sustain it? This is a big club that plays to win trophies. Everyone involved wants to go the same direction, to succeed´´
“Conte is more involved than Jose Mourinho. If he could jump on the pitch and play, he would. He’s so passionate. He can’t just sit still on the bench. Everyone is happy at the training ground, the players say he’s fantastic and he motivates them´´ Paulo Ferreira said as he talked about Antonio Conte and compared him to the former Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho.
