Captain Gianluigi Buffon explains why Antonio Conte will be a success at Chelsea


Italy captain Gianluigi Buffon says he sees no reason why head coach Antonio Conte cannot be a success at Chelsea.

The Azzurri registered their second win at Euro 2016 after a hard-fought 1-0 win against Sweden.

And the 38-year-old was full of praise for Conte as he described him as one who always demands more from his players.

"[Antonio] Conte is a big coach and I'm convinced he will be an excellent one at Chelsea," the goalkeeper told reporters before the game.

"A Conte team is strong in defence and works constantly, day to day.

"Conte is a coach with an idea that is very simple. For the players he makes it very clear.

"He wants to play without risk in the defensive line and to exploit the opportunities to score goals when they come.

"This appears easy but he always wants more. So to go where we want we need to do whatever the coach asks of us."
