Andrea Pirlo is the main candidate to become the new assistant of Antonio Conte in Chelsea, claims Ray Wilkins.
The ex-player of The Blues has suggested that Conte is the one who opts for such a decision. His current assistant is Steve Holland, but he will reportedly leave Chelsea in the summer and join the staff of English national football team.
'Andrea has been visiting Chelsea's stadium few times this season. He may be the one who will replace Holland, as Conte is a supporter of such decision. I think that if he will win the English league title, he could choose whoever he wants', Wilkins has commented.
Pirlo is currently playing for New York City. His deal expires in December this year and it could not be ruled out that he will come back to Europe after that. Not long time ago, he stated that Conte is the best manager in the world.
