Former Chelsea player Paulo Ferreira is certain that Antonio Conte can be as successful as Jose Mourinho in terms of managerial trophies.
Even though Jose Mourinho is one of the most controversial and despised managers in the world of football, it´s hard to argue the fact that the Portuguese tactician has been one of the most impressive ones from the past 20 years.
Jose Mourinho and his squad shocked the world on 2004 after claiming successive victories over: Manchester United, Lyon and Deportivo La Coruña before reaching the finals of the UEFA Champions League and facing off with As.Monaco and emerging victorious.
The 54 year old manager has also gone on to win major trophies with: Chelsea, Inter Milan and Real Madrid.
Antonio Conte on the hand has only been lifting pieces of silverware with Juventus after having won the Serie A title for 3 successive years which is actually impressive but not as remarkable as Jose Mourinho´s managerial.
Despite not being as imposing as Jose Mourinho, Paulo Ferreira believes that Antonio Conte has what it takes to start winning major pieces of silverware in the same way that Mourinho has been able to do for the past few years as Paulo Ferreira said:
“Can he build something similar to what Jose did and sustain it? This is a big club that plays to win trophies. Everyone involved wants to go the same direction, to succeed.
´´We know this is a really competitive League where it is difficult to win it two, three, four years in a row. But the aim is there. If we can do it for five straight years, that would be brilliant. Replacing the old guard that played under Mourinho is just the way football is. Many have gone and new players have come in´´
