Chelsea Boss Antonio Conte Admits He Will Return To Italy One Day

Antonio Conte throws Chelsea future into doubt

Conte’s long-term future is in doubt

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte insists he will return to manage in Italy in future, as he misses his homeland. I don't know when but that's the aim.

"Once [I am] done [with] some nice and formative experiences, I for sure will return to Italy". 'Bundesliga? It's always hard to predict the future.

And Conte aimed a jibe at English managers, saying: "Are we better than the English?" Not only that, Conte is potentially even eyeing a move beyond being a coach and will seek sporting director roles instead after he quits Chelsea.

Conte, who has won league titles in each of his last four seasons as a club manager, acknowledged that the best players "continue to choose the Premier League", but also equally noted that, "our Serie A is rising". "Today you are here, tomorrow you can be somewhere else".

"The English experience has greatly enriched me, and I'd like to carry on as manager in the future".

After a tough summer and a tough start to the season which saw a feud with Diego Costa dominate the talk surrounding Chelsea, a loss to Arsenal in the Community Shield, an opening day defeat at home to Burnley, plus some questionable dealings in the transfer market, the pressure was piling on Conte.

Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas is hopeful that Marcos Alonso's consistent performances will eventually earn him a national team call up in the near future.

That said, the fact that Conte was under any pressure whatsoever was a joke considering what he had achieved last season when nobody expected Chelsea to seriously challenge for the title.

"I think VAR is a very useful tool".
