Conte: “This is a good challenge for me”

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte told the club’s official website he is pleased to be in charge at Stamford Bridge after joining the Blues last summer.

“This is a good challenge for me, and for my wife and my daughter, – the Italian manager said – because this is the first time for me working in a country with another language, with different habits and also a different method of work, but I am enthusiastic about this experience because I think I arrive in the right moment of my life”. 

“However, for me it is a bit difficult now to enjoy London as usually when you arrive in a new club it is important to put the job for me and my staff above all else in this first period. For this reason I am enjoying only a little of London. I hope in the future to explore London better, but for now I prefer to be concentrated on the work.”

“Sometimes if I go for a walk in Chelsea there are many Italian people here, but it is good and I have seen a lot of respect shown to the players and to me. I appreciate it a lot”.

Anyway, Conte revealed he prefers to spend time with his family: “For now they stay in Italy and every weekend they come here and stay with me. Always they come to games and when we play at home they sit behind me and I want this. I want to feel their support.”

About the food habits: “In England the meat is very good, great chicken and the red meat is fantastic, also the vegetables, and the strawberries in summer.”
