Juventus veteran Chiellini: Conte can be like a police sergeant

Juventus veteran Giorgio Chiellini admits Antontio Conte works his players hard.

Conte is under pressure at Chelsea with complaints from his players of his training intensity being raised.

Chiellini stated to the Daily Mail: “It is not only in the match with Conte.

“It is all day, every training session. He is like a police sergeant.

“We felt something very special in his atmosphere, for three years with him at Juventus and two years in the national team.

“When you finish training, you are dead. Not tired — dead. You can do it only because you believe in what he does. We had 40 days in France and it was like entering another world.

“You are 100 per cent with him. He creates an atmosphere, everyone gives energy to each other. For sure he is one of the very best."
