The Italian manager has been getting used to life at Stamford Bridge after being appointed as Jose Mourinho’s permanent successor last summer.
Conte enjoyed a sparkly debut campaign in England as he inspired the Blues to the Premier League title in his first season at the club.
Chelsea have made something of a mixed start to the new campaign, however, with the Blues currently nine points behind leaders Manchester City in the Premier League table.
The west London side were also beaten 3-0 by Roma in the Champions League on Tuesday night to heap fresh pressure on Conte.
However, former Manchester United star Hargreaves is a huge admirer of the Chelsea manager and says he would have loved to have played under the Italian.
Speaking to BT Sport, Hargreaves said: “He is intense. He demands a lot from the players. He gets results. We saw that last season.
“He is the type of manager I’d have loved to have played for. If you get results as a player, you don’t mind. He sets his team up very well.”
Chelsea are preparing to return to Premier League action on Sunday afternoon with a crunch clash against Manchester United at Stamford Bridge.
The west London side were 1-0 winners over Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium last weekend, while Manchester United beat Tottenham 1-0 at Old Trafford in their most recent top-flight outing.
