- Italian manager Claudio Ranieri visited the Chelsea Cobham training center on Friday
- Antonio Conte said his compatriot talked about winning the Premier League last season
- Ranieri led Leicester to the Premier League title last season but was sacked a few months later
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte received an important visitor in Claudio Ranieri, the 2015-2016 Premier League winning manager.
Ranieri was sacked by Leicester earlier this season after recording five wins in 25 games in the league this season.
The Italian visited the Cohbam ground ahead of the Blues Premier League clash with Bourenmouth on Saturday.
The axed-Leicester boss managed the club between 2000 and 2004 before Jose Mourinho took over.
On Ranieri’s appearance at Chelsea’s Cobham Training Centre, Conte said: “Claudio is a good friend.
“I was very pleased to see him, to chat. It’s normal to ask something about last season."
He added: “It was good to see him. We spoke about my experience in England, the different way to train between here and Italy.
“He’s a good friend and I wish him the best in the future. He deserves a new job. I think he’s ready to take another job."
The Blues are currently seven points clear of Tottenham in the table with just eight games to play.
