Chelsea boss Antonio Conte admitted that something is missing to make his first season at Stamford Bridge fantastic:
“My first season is very good,” he said on Sky Sports.
“It’s very good for me because it’s a great experience. It’s my first time to work in another country as coach.
“I think I am satisfied for my impact in this league. But for sure I want to go to the end and play to win with my players, with the club and the fans.
“After a really good season like this, it is important for it to become a fantastic season. There is only one way for it to become a fantastic season and that is to win.”
Chelsea finished last season in 10th and weren’t many pundits’ pick for the title this year.
And Conte admits changing the opinion of the public has been his toughest task.
“The expectation of Chelsea at the start of the season wasn’t high.
“I think the expectation was to try and to fight and to get in the Champions League.
“I think this situation pushed a lot the players and I to try to change the opinion of the press, the people who look at football every week.”
