Former Liverpool man: I think you might get a Louis van Gaal at Chelsea with Antonio Conte


New Chelsea manager Antonio Conte could find life difficult at Stamford Bridge, former Liverpool winger Jason McAteer believes.

The Italian will take charge of the club after this summer's Euro Championship as he will have the tough job of winning the Premier League after this season's disaster.

But McAteer says the 46-year-old could flop at Chelsea.

"I think you might get a [Louis] Van Gaal at Chelsea with Conte," the 44-year-old is quoted as saying by the Daily Star.

"I don't think he's going to be everyone's cup of tea.

"And I don't know whether he'll cut it at Chelsea.

"I don't know whether he's the man for the club.

"It's completely different managing a team like Juventus who are in a league where you get only three of four challengers for their title.

"In that league in Serie A, it's a lot easier than the Premier League.

"Every week is tough in the Premier League – in Serie A it's every other week."
