Andrea Pirlo has revealed how “obsessed” Antonio Conte becomes “a demon” when his team loses.

The Italian legend has backed Conte to guide Inter Milan to the Serie A title this season.

AC Milan will be aiming to knock Inter’s Scudetto bid off course when the sides meet at San Siro in Sunday’s Derby della Madonnina.

Conte’s Inter Milan remain in title battle alongside Juventus and Lazio.

“They’ll fight for the Scudetto to the end,” Pirlo told Gazzetta dello Sport. “Conte forces you to give your best at all times, more than you even thought you had. He is obsessed with victory, so when he loses, he becomes a demon. You daren’t speak to him.

“Conte is the best coach I ever worked with, every day he showed us 40-50 minute video sessions. It’s because of him that I started considering the idea of becoming a coach myself.”
