Maurizio Sarri was hired as his replacement and the 61-year-old helped the west London side win Europa League before joining Juventus.

Guardiola won back-to-back EPL trophies in his second and third season, while Klopp is on the verge of clinching the title after about five years in charge of the Reds.

Conte who is seriously contending for the Serie A silverware in his first year in Italy threw shades at his former EPL colleagues.

He said: "At Chelsea, I won the Premier League in the first year and the FA Cup in the second year.

"Klopp hasn't won anything yet in England after four years and Guardiola didn't win anything in his first year."
