Tottenham boss Antonio Conte is such a fan of Leeds United manager Marcelo Bielsa he has attended a past class put on by the Argentine.
Bielsa, 66, is known to be a big inspiration to several well-respected managers, including Pep Guardiola, Mauricio Pochettino, and Diego Simeone.
But few would have predicted his influence on Tottenham boss Antonio Conte, 52, whose tactical style could not be much more different to Bielsa's.
Nevertheless, the former Chelsea and Juventus boss attended a masterclass given by the Argentine back in 2015, when Conte was still in charge of Italy, says The Sun.
The two have never faced one another as opposing managers, but will do so when they go head-to-head at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium on Sunday.
The game will mark Conte's second league game in charge of Spurs since replacing Nuno Espirito Santo last month, having drawn 0-0 with Everton.
