Everything points to Italian Antonio Conte being appointed as the next Real Madrid first team coach with the 5-1 El Clasico reverse apparently sealing Julen Lopetegui's tenure on the Santiago Bernabeu bench.

The former Chelsea boss is well known for being a disciplinarian in the dressing room and this is the case when it comes to the dietary habits of his team. No bread, ice-cream, pizza and only pasta made by kamut flour will be tolerated by the Italian.

Crisps, buns and sandwiches are also taboo for his players with his dietary specialists encouraging his squad to consume fruit and vegetables in abundance along with meat that is only composed of the animal's muscular fibres.

The 49-year-old Lecce born coach is also against large meals, preferring that his team eat regularly but in smaller amounts during the day.
