Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has said Guardiola is only better because he has things easy at Manchester City.
Guardiola’s team have a 100% record in the Premier League blowing all opposition away with relative ease while in contrast, Conte’s team has struggled for consistency.
And Conte believes Guardiola’s great start to the season is due friendlier surroundings and a strong Spanish presence in the team and in the surroundings.
“I think that Manchester City they are playing similar football to what they played in the past,” Conte told reporters. “You must see what type of tactical situation you find [when taking over a club].
“That is because the directors of football are Spanish and they bought a lot of players who are used to this idea of football and these tactics. I think it is a bit easier for his players to get stuck into his ideas.”
Conte also spoke on the rebuilding job he’s doing at Chelsea and says he doesn’t fear the sack.
“When you trust your work, you are never afraid [of being sacked],” Conte said. “I am doing my work and I continue to do my work in the same way that I did in the past and in the present, continuing as usual.” he said.
“I am sure that if I don’t win tomorrow, if I don’t win the next game, I am sure that in the future I will win, I am sure.
“I discussed about my job with the club before I arrived to sign and before I signed I think that here and at every club before you sign or they take a new manager, it is important to speak about what work the manager did in the past.”
