Antonio Conte: Why I don’t intend to walk in Sir Alex Ferguson and Arsene Wenger footstep

Antonio Conte has enjoyed a marvellous first season so far in charge of Chelsea. Despite losing 2-0 to Tottenham on Wednesday, the Blues are five points clear at the top of the Premier League. Wenger, 67, has spent 20 years in charge of Arsenal, although the first half of his reign was more successful than his second. Ferguson, meanwhile, was at the Manchester United helm for over 20 years, retiring three years ago at the age of 72. But Conte, who will be 48 in July, doesn’t intend to go on coaching forever. When discussing his managerial plans, Conte said: “Sir Alex Ferguson is a good example for me.

“When I see him and I see Arsène, you are talking about two monsters, two great managers. “I hope to have not completely their career, but 10 years. That’s enough for me.” Conte however, acknowledges, that football can be all consuming. He added: “But football is our life. When you decide to do this job, it is because you like to have this pressure. “And the moment that you miss it, we are in trouble.” Chelsea host Peterborough in the third round of the FA Cup later today (3pm)
