Italy manager, Antonio Conte has been warned about his potential move to Chelsea in the summer by former Italian footballer, turned manager, Marco Tardelli.

According to the Mirror, the former assistant of the Republic of Ireland said that the English don’t understand tactics.

Tardelli was quoted saying:

He will have the opportunity to build a team, just as Jose Mourinho did. The only problem is that the English don’t really want to understand tactics.

Tactics have been a big talking about ever since the Italian started to be linked with a move to Stamford Bridge, with Conte even being compared to Chelsea’s former manager, Jose Mourinho.
