Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri ‘awaits the revolution’ at Chelsea when Antonio Conte arrives
Leicester City manager Claudio Ranieri expects a revolution at Chelsea under new manager Antonio Conte.
The Italian, who managed the Blues between 2000 and 2004, takes the Foxes to Stamford Bridge on the final day of the season having deposed his opposition as champions.
Chelsea are 31 points behind Leicester, who have won the Premier League at a canter, sitting 10 points clear of their closest rivals at the top.
Jose Mourinho was sacked in December and replaced by Guus Hiddink with Conte to join the club after Italy’s campaign in the 2016 European Championship finals.
Chelsea are ninth ahead of the season finale but Ranieri believes under Conte, who won Serie A with Juventus three times, they will become a force next season.
“He is a tough man, it is hard for him to change because he will make a little revolution there. I am waiting for it, I await the revolution when he arrives. He changes everything,” said Ranieri.
“He is very concentrated in his job, the little things. He wants to care for everything, nutrition, everything.”
