If Manchester United are seeking to find a manager who they know has the capabilities to get them to the summit of the Premier League, look no further than Antonio Conte. In fact, the Italian remains one of the 21st century's most underrated managers with his record barely being touched by anyone on the current scene.
Conte is coming off the back of being the first manager to dethrone Juventus in almost a decade as he won Serie A with Inter Milan, which to put in perspective just how great that is, the last time Juventus actually lost the league title, Conte won it back for them a year later. In fact, he has now secured four Serie A titles (three with Juventus).
On top of this, and more notably, is his success as Chelsea manager as he, alongside Mourinho, remains the only manager in the last decade to touch the Premier League crown at Stamford Bridge. Furthermore, the 93 points he secured in that title-winning campaign of 2016/17 have only been bettered by Mourinho in 2004/05 by a Blues boss, while Jurgen Klopp and Pep Guardiola are the only two to better this in Premier League history.
What is also a commendable feat of Conte's is his two FA Cup runs in his two years as boss with the west London side. The Italian fell to Arsenal in the final in his debut campaign as a league and cup double was snatched from him, however, Conte won the FA Cup the following year, beating who else but a Mourinho United side in the final. So, within two years, only a League Cup evaded him in England.
In total, the serial winner that is Conte managed to win 51 Premier League games from 76 outings, losing only 15 and scoring 147 goals while conceding 71. However, it's his first year at Chelsea that will be forever remembered as he broke all sorts of records with the Blues such as most wins in a season (30), most consecutive wins (13) and the second-most points in a Premier League season - all records have since been dethroned, however.
