More from Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, who spoke after his side’s home win against West Bromwich Albion thanks to goals from Eden Hazard and Victor Moses.
The Italian boss said: “For sure I have to thank the fans. They showed me great support because I think they are reading speculation and rumours about me. I’m grateful to the fans for supporting me in this way. It means that, maybe in our 18 months together, they understand my passion and my will to defend these colours, this shirt, this badge. I want to thank them”.
“To feel this atmosphere around me is very important. It’s very important to feel that people appreciate my work here in Chelsea.
“For sure, for me it’s important. I repeat: me and the players are trying to do our best to give them the best satisfaction. Sometimes we can do this, sometimes not, but the will is always present.”
