LIVERPOOL (ENGLAND) – During the Premier League hiatus for the coronavirus pandemic, Gary Cahill was interviewed by the Daily Mail.
During this interview with Jamie Redknapp , Cahill spoke of his experience at Chelsea and of Antonio Conte and Maurizio Sarri , two coaches he had in London.
Cahill has a high regard for Antonio Conte while he can't stand the current Juventus manager.
The statements made by the former Chelsea player are reported by gianlucadimarzio.com.
Cahill attacks Sarri: "What do I think of him? I don't respect him … "
“Conte is a great coach. He knew that formation like his pockets and there was no player on the field who did not know what his role was. Otherwise you didn't play.
Conte and Mourinho's attention to detail never waned. They have a lot of confidence, an arrogance in a good way. " “He was very interested in his tactics, probably too much and I lost some of his advice because he was involved in the World Cup.
To be brutally honest, the relationship was over mid-season. It is difficult to have respect for some of his choices. But I have a lot for the club and for the players.
It was easy? – continues Cahill – No. Was it one of the most mentally difficult things to deal with? One hundred percent.
I knew in my head that if I played four or five games in a row, I would be back. It is a necessary arrogance. But I never had this chance. "
