Will not remain overseas for long, says homesick Conte

Will not remain overseas for long, says homesick Conte”

48-year-old 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".

But the former Juventus and Italy boss did not extend the length of his stay beyond the next two seasons when he penned a fresh contract during the close season, having been tipped to return home and take charge of Inter.

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte talked to Radio Anch'io lo sport on Monday morning and made a few surprising revelations about the future of his Chelsea career. I miss Italy, that's a fact. I did not have it in my head to stay overseas for so long.

"The experiences away from home are handsome and important, but I will return to Italy". I don't know when but that's my objective.

"I would never go to China, La Liga or Bundesliga but it is hard to foresee the future. Today you are here, tomorrow you can be somewhere else".

'I have the will to finish a project, and then look for the right continuation of that.

"Definitely this experience in England has enriched me a lot in all aspects". I'd also like to become a sporting director in the future. There are practically no English managers in the Premier League.

"You have got to get used to a different language and this leads to a substantial loss of energy as you need to concentrate to work in a different language", Conte said.

"Tottenham, who are a very, very good team, together with Liverpool and Arsenal - it's a battle and you can not say who will win the league", he said.

"Are we better than the English?" "For me, it's not easy to coach overseas". But I've experienced excellent stadiums, incredible atmospheres, fans who come to live in the moment, to have a party.

"I don't think we've been lucky with the draw as we've got one of toughest groups", he said. We returned to the Champions League with great enthusiasm and we want to do our best, but we have to be careful.
