Manchester, July 8 (IANS) Manchester City head coach Pep Guardiola on Friday praised Antonio Conte who will be at the helm of Chelsea this football season, saying the Italian is a “master tactician”.

The English Premier League (EPL) this year will also witness Jose Mourinho commanding the Manchester United team.

“Conte is a master tactician,” Guardiola was quoted as saying by football-italia.net. “It’s a very good signing. It’s going to be very interesting competing against him and other top coaches.”

Conte’s compatriot Roberto Mancini, who is presently in charge of Inter Milan wants to rope in Yaya Toure from City but Guardiola doesn’t intend to part ways with him.

“I know Yaya. He did very well for Barcelona and here as well. He’s a huge talent, but all the players here now are counting on me. I’m counting on them all, including Yaya,” he said.
