Antonio Conte is the only manager that beat Zlatan Ibrahimovic in a title race so far and the Italian coach wants to repeat himself also this year.

The Swedish striker won five leagues out of six while playing in the Serie A, and the only one he didn’t win was the 2011/2012, when Conte won his first Scudetto with Juventus, beating Milan in the last fixtures.

The new Blues boss hopes history can repeat with Chelsea vs Manchester United this year:

“As a coach it was the first championship of my career with Juventus. 

“It was fantastic because we started the season as the underdog and the press had us down for sixth or seventh place in the table.

“I remember that Milan had Zlatan Ibrahimovic and it was the only season that he didn’t win the championship.

“I hope that in this coming season, it is the same again!”

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has been taking English lessons for a year but has admitted he wants to improve it a lot.

The 47-year-old said: “For me, I have to improve my English a lot. When we go back to London, I will start English lessons. I think it’s very important to find the way to explain, to speak.”

“There are many different people who don’t understand English but I think for the manager it’s important and I studied before to improve my English.”

“Now I want to restart. I thought in these days, in Austria and now in America, can I have the time to study? No.”

Then Conte added: “Every minute is for the team and to prepare, to study the video for the game, of the training session, to see the right position, the right movement, the defence situation, the attack situation.”

“And for these reasons, to find a minute to study English is very, very difficult. When we go back to London, I will have the morning or the afternoon to study. I want to improve.”

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has revealed: “My voice is important to call and talk to the players. During games it can be very difficult for my throat, but it is important for me to make them understand me”.

“Especially when starting new work together. When I started coaching I sometimes used a megaphone.”

Then, speaking about Chelsea’s pre-season, he added: “Obviously we have to improve,” 

“After the training session, video analysis. You can see the good and the bad, show players how to improve. Not because I want to find blame. Sometimes 20 or 30 minutes of video is more important than three training sessions.”
