Chelsea great John Terry played under Jose Mourinho and Antonio Conte during his time as a Chelsea player.
Terry, who now plays for Championship club Aston Villa, has revealed training under Antonio Conte is tougher than training under Jose Mourinho.
“[It’s] not hard at all [to play under Conte],” Terry said on Sky Sports’ Monday Night Football. “His training is very tough.”
“Yes,” Conte replied when asked whether the Italian’s training was harder than Mourinho’s.
“Tougher than most, physically tougher, more demanding, a bit more running, which is normal for Italian coaches.
“Tactically a little bit more, but I think you can see, when you’re a player, working 45 minutes to an hour every day on your tactics and you see that benefit at the weekend, you don’t mind doing it.
“He’s got a real good balance and he makes it enjoyable week in, week out.”
