Chelsea manager Antonio Conte told Sky Sport Italia journalist Paolo Condò that Blues‘ owner Roman Abramovich is a “demanding boss”, anyway he believes that the Russian is a great admirer of tactical systems and new ideas.
The Italian boss said: “He’s a very demanding employer but a great football enthusiast.
“Mr Abramovich is an employer and owner who has great passion for football. He wants to know and understand your ideas.
“He went to Austria to follow our training sessions. He comes to Cobham to spend time with us and watch the videos I show to my players, because he really wants to understand. I think this is wonderful.”
