Conte has been linked with Unai Emery's job at Chelsea, but Di Meco insists the Italian isn't the man for the job.
"He was English champion last season with a strong style of play and a strong project," Di Meco told SFR Sport. "But I do not find his class at all this year.
"And afterwards, he said he was afraid to lose 3-0 or 4-0. I'm not sure that this mentality is great. We must take only guys with an exemplary mentality."
