Hiddink gives Conte advice

Guus Hiddink reckons Antonio Conte, who has been named to succeed him at Stamford Bridge, should have his eyes on the products of the club’s academy and should make sure that they are moved up to the next level if they are ready.

The Chelsea board has always spent heavily on the academic facilities so that the talents make progress quickly and smoothly and make the journey to the next level.

But, most of the club’s coaches in the past, including the legendary Jose Mourinho, have been indifferent to youngsters from the academy and have just not trusted them enough to use them at the senior level.


Juventus general manager Beppe Marotta has come out in praise of coach Antonio Conte after the latter led the club to a third successive league title without even kicking a ball this weekend. Conte was given the job of taking Juventus back to the Italian Serie A when he was appointed as the coach of the team in 2011.

However, none would have imagined that he would have led the club to 3 successive titles apart from getting promoted back into the Italian top division. Juventus are one of the most successful clubs in Europe, but they are relegated after the match fixing scandal a few years ago.
