Juventus wing-back Mauricio Isla says he's close to his former Chile coach Marcelo Bielsa.

Isla moved to Juve this summer from Udinese.

“I have the mentality of Marcelo Bielsa, my former Chile Coach, which is that of a culture of work,” he told Hurra Juventus.

“It might also be a coincidence, but the first thing Conte said was identical to what was said during my time under Bielsa. I don’t know him well enough yet, but Conte gives the feeling of getting the most out of his players.
