, Sconcerti said: “
A week ago, I had the opportunity to speak at length with Conte.
“There were three of us from Corriere della Sera, two at Appiano Gentile and myself on the phone.
“I will not talk about the interview because it came out last Sunday, but I’ll talk about the different impression that Conte made on me.
“He is a man with confidence in himself, he is reasoned, has explained tranquillity and is not just instinctive.
“He does not deny that after games he can be a bit on edge and often quarrelsome, however he makes it clear that there is much more behind him.
“It is not fair to judge a person based on a stressful moment.
“I must say that in the twenty or so times that I happened to meet him in life or for work, I had the sensation of this different depth that did not add up with the extreme version of him we see on the bench.
“I have now found the confirmation that Conte is a coach who is not like a footballer.
“I would say he is a coach who goes far beyond impressions and management of the pitch.
“He is someone who loves to do a lot and who judges himself every time.
“An atypical term comes to me: it seems to me that he is a cultured coach.
“Before I would say I have only said this about Enzo Bearzot, Nils Liedholm and Marcello Lippi.”

title in over a decade this season after their 2-1 victory overParma
