Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has told Italian TV that he is motivated to stay at the Blues for the long term as he looks to embrace the challenges of living in another country.
The Italian’s family now live in the UK after staying in Italy for Conte’s first season in charge at Stamford Bridge. Speaking in an interview with Premium Sport (quotes via Calciomercato.com), the Chelsea boss explained that he wants his family to have the chance to live in another culture and learn another language:
“My future? It’s better to think about Chelsea, I have two years of contract and I want to live this incredible experience here, I’m learning another culture, another language and another football, and I want to give a chance to my family and my daughter to learn English. My present is very important.”
Speculation has been constant over Conte’s future with the Blues over the past few months. The Times have reported he will leave the club at the end of the season after numerous disputes with the club’s board. Meanwhile in Italy, the Chelsea manager has been constantly linked with managerial posts with Serie A side AC Milan being touted as his most likely destination at the moment.
