Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, speaking ahead of next game against Crystal Palace, admitted life “was difficult” alone in London last season, anyway he’s more settled at Chelsea now as his family are based in England.
“Last season was difficult because when you are alone it was all about my job – Conte said – This season there is my job but I go to my house, with my daughter and wife, and we can take the car and try to visit London, Kingston or discover new restaurants. Recently we went with Carlo [Cudicini] to a Brazilian restaurant in Leatherhead”.
The Italian manager added: “Last season was very difficult for my wife because she divided her time between Italy, where she was with my daughter, and me in London. Now for sure it’s great for me and my family. For my daughter it’s a fantastic experience and for my wife, living in a new country and learning a new language is great”.
