As Chelsea and Tottenham go head-to-head today in a battle for a top finish at Stamford Bridge, the Blues boss Antonio Conte has suggest that football in England is a different ball game.
The former Juventus coach, who won three Serie A titles during his time in Italy, believes it is more straightforward to achieve success abroad.
“I must be honest, if you want to win trophies, maybe for important managers, it’s easier to go to another country,” he added.
“In England, if you stay here, never, never will it be easy to win trophies.
“But, for sure, every manager wants to try and win a trophy.” Speaking on the game ahead Conte said Tottenham are a side under a good manager. “I consider Mauricio Pochettino a really good manager,” said Conte.
“I think that, if Tottenham grew a lot in this period, he has a lot of credit for that.
“We are talking about a team who, in the last period for many years now, they are competing to win the title. “Two years ago, they were very close to winning the title when Leicester won it. Last season they tried to compete with us. “Don’t forget that only one team can win the title.”
