Capello: “Conte is preparing for Chelsea”

Former England coach Fabio Capello is sure Antonio Conte will be next Chelsea manager:

“Conte is preparing for Chelsea,” Capello told Fox Sports Italia.

“He has the time to arrive and train Chelsea in the best way, as this is an important club.

“I think the most important thing will be the team he is able to put on the field. He needs defenders and there aren’t that many around.

“His communication with the players will also be fundamental. I myself had a difficult experience in Russia where I always had to speak through a translator.

“It was not easy, because the players always expect that extra word from the Coach, the decisive statement to let you understand or change something.”

It’s understood Conte has been taking English lessons for a while, but it’s not sure what his language level now.
