Begovic admits incoming Chelsea boss Conte is 'impressive'

Asmir Begovic has hailed incoming Chelsea manager Antonio Conte as 'impressive'.

Conte will be taking over the reins at Chelsea following Italy's European Championship campaign and many are certainly looking forward to what sort of effect the 46-year-old will have on the fallen Premier League giants during the upcoming campaign.

Chelsea custodian Begovic is looking forward to working with Conte and has gone on to hail the former Juventus boss as 'impressive' despite admitting to not watching too much of how he operates with the Azzurri.

The goalkeeper said on Sports Illustrated Planet Futbol: "I watched them against Belgium. He's impressive, he's a top manager.

"It doesn't mean what he's doing with Italy he'll do with us. You can't read too much into it but we're excited. Hopefully it'll be a change for the better."
