Materazzi: "Conte knows how to get 100% out of you, this is why he is similar to Mou"
Speaking to the Gazzetta dello Sport, Marco Materazzi believes that coaching Inter is a great opportunity for Antonio Conte.
“Conte now has a great opportunity to be loved after being hated given his past, as well as being hated by Juventus fans. He has the means to do it because he is in an important club with history to respect. He has great ownership and management behind him, an excellent team that brings in 70 thousand fans to the stadium every game. Wherever he goes, he has proven to be able to get 100% of everyone at that club. This is similar to Mou even if they are two totally different coaches: one that is loved by the fans, the other has work to do to be loved.”
Some time ago, you said to us (GdS) that Juventus were ten years ahead of competition.
“After eight consecutive league titles, I hope that it will change now. Certainly, Conte has a great desire to beat his past. You have to be ambitious, Inter are willing to sign big players. Plus the fans are always there, San Siro atmosphere is incredible. Inter must make sure that the team is moving towards great results.”
Is there any other rival for Juve?
“Napoli have a great coach and will have important pieces on a solid foundation. Milan, which seem lagging behind others, did well by bringing back champions like Maldini.”
