Former Juventus forward Alessandro Del Piero believes Antonio Conte can lead Chelsea to Premier League glory this season.
The former Italy coach is set to begin work at Stamford Bridge later this month after guiding the Azzurri to the quarter-finals of Euro 2016.
The 46-year-old also enjoyed a successful spell managing Juventus, where he guided the club to three straight Serie A titles before taking over the reins of the national team.
The former midfielder’s next port of call is West London ,where he will be hoping to return the 2014-15 Premier League champions to the top of the English game – for which they are currently on offer at 6/1 with Titanbet, after they could only achieve a tenth-place finish last season.
Del Piero is convinced his former Juventus team-mate can guide Chelsea to glory once again this season, although he expects the Premier League to be a fiercely competitive division.
“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.”
