Antonio Conte commits to Chelsea after 'year of suffering'

Posted October 16, 2017

Conte now has his wife, Elisabetta, and his daughter, Vittoria, by his side after the pair moved into a house close to the club's Cobham training ground in the summer.

"I love being with my family", he added "This year will be better because they are moving to England from Italy".

"I have to think football 18 hours a day".

Serie A giants AC Milan have firmly said that they are not looking to convince Chelsea boss Antonio Conte to take charge next season.

"For two weeks I am reading wrong things", he said. Sometimes I hate this job, because sometimes you lose your life. I have two years on my contract with Chelsea to go and I'm happy to work for this club, with my players and I like to work with my players. With a Premier League Winner's medal and an FA Cup final after only a year at the blues, fans are starting to see Conte as a manager that they can put their faith in for a long time.

"Every coach, when they start, they work with the club and hope they will stay for a long time and build something important".

'But I always say our job is very hard and it is very odd because one day you are the best and another day you stay at your home'. His previous scan suggested maybe 20-25 days. For this reason we are going to do another scan in one week. "When [you] want to write something it is important to write the truth and my family stays here, not in Italy".

Tiemoue Bakayoko and Cesc Fabregas are the only fit central midfielders, but Conte is reluctant to push David Luiz further forward, as he did when Chelsea beat Tottenham at Wembley earlier in he season.

"But for Charly, he could have a good opportunity this season to play also because we have only three No. 10s".
