Ex-Marseille star slams 'negative Conte': He doesn't have mentality for PSG job

Former Marseille fullback Eric di Meco has urged PSG to give Chelsea boss Antonio Conte a swerve.

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.

"Against Manchester City last weekend, where he had to take points, he lay like a larva in front of Pep Guardiola. While Chelsea lost 1-0, he did not even put on an attacker.

"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."
