Antonio Conte keen to make sure Paul Lambert does not repeat upset 20 years on

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has tasted defeat to a team of underdogs including Paul Lambert before.

Conte was recovering from a cruciate knee ligament injury and watched on as highly-fancied Juventus were beaten 3-1 in the 1997 Champions League final by Lambert’s Borussia Dortmund, a side which included three former Juve players.

Now the pair are reunited at Molineux on Saturday, when Lambert’s Championship Wolves – who have already beaten Stoke and Liverpool in the FA Cup this season – host the Premier League leaders.

“This is one of the three finals that I lost,” Conte said.

“We were favourites. I remember that they were the underdog before the game, but they won very well against us.

“He was a good player. I remember very well.

“Revenge is not a good word. Now we started a new career me and Lambert, as coaches.

“I wish for him the best for his career – after this game. For me it will be a great pleasure to shake his hand.”
