Antonio Conte: I’m here to work, work, work and lead Chelsea back to glory

In English that was surprisingly confident and fluent, the former Italian national team manager, who took his side to the quarter finals on Euro 2016 said: “It is a great pleasure for me to be here. I am very happy – I will work a lot to stay here and I am excited at this moment to start a new season with Chelsea.

“This is a new chapter for my life, my career for me and my family. I’m happy to start and work in a new country, a fantastic country and fantastic league. This league is very difficult, the most difficult in the world, because six or seven teams can win the title. Chelsea is a great team.”

Conte, assured and at ease facing a large audience, refused to label himself either a Special One or a Happy One, saying he would leave it for others to name him at the end of the season.

He said: “I’m a worker. I like to work. I know only that road for this club to get back to compete in Champions League and for the title. I know only this verb. To work, work and work. And I found the right attitude for that here.”
