Pirlo backs Conte over Mourinho

Former Juventus and Italy international Andrea Pirlo believes that manager Antonio Conte will be a better fit for Inter Milan compared to Jose Mourinho.

Conte is reportedly poised to take over at Inter, despite current head coach Luciano Spalletti securing UEFA Champions League qualification in back-to-back seasons via a fourth-place finish in the Serie A this term.

But another person being linked with the job is none other than former Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho, who also spent some time at Inter.

And despite the 56-year-old Portuguese enjoying a great deal of success during his previous stint at the club, Pirlo does not believe that he is the right man for the job.

“In my opinion, Conte can give more than Mourinho, especially in terms of structure and agonism.

“If he’d join Inter the fans will support the team, even more, they’ll be closer to the players,” he said.
