Spanish forward Diego Costa has disclosed that his former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte would find it extremely difficult to manage a big club like Real Madrid because of his poor man-management skills.
The former Chelsea forward, now plying his trade at Real's city rivals Atletico Madrid, fell out with Conte in the summer of 2017 just weeks before the then English champions resumed preseason training.
Antonio Conte, who now manages Inter Milan, sent a text message to Costa informing him that he was no longer part of his plans.
As the season started, Costa was on the fringe of the squad before he joined Atletico Madrid the next winter.
"We had problems off the pitch, but I think he is a really good manager. I have no hard feelings towards Conte.
But to be a top, top manager, he needs to change the human side of his management. He is very suspicious.
At a like, say, Real Madrid, he would never last a season," he told ESPN Brazil.
