Chelsea will be among the sides fighting to win the Premier League title under Antonio Conte, according to his former Juventus teammate Alessandro Del Piero.
Conte inherits a side that finished 10th and 31 points behind champions Leicester last season, but comes into the job with a reputation as one of the best coaches in European football.
“He’s a good guy, he loves to work a lot,” Del Piero told Sky Sports. “If he has a chance to talk to players in the right way, and if they understand what he wants, Chelsea can have a very good season and probably win the title.
“It’s not easy, the Premier League is amazing this year in terms of players and coaches, but he has a chance.”
