Chelsea still a work in progress, admits Conte

  • Antonio Candreva scoring for Inter

"When you start a job with a new club, I hope to stay in this club for many years".

"Harry Kane wasn't this player three years ago".

"Why not? I hope [to manage Chelsea into their new stadium]".

"When I look at his quality, he has had fantastic experiences at the clubs that he has been at", he told Goal.

Eyebrows were raised on the Premier League's opening weekend when Conte opted to start with Morata on the substitutes' bench and Michy Batshuayi up front against Burnley, who capitalised on Chelsea red cards for Gary Cahill and Cesc Fabregas to claim a shock 3-2 win at Stamford Bridge.

According to the Mirror, Premier League champions Chelsea are close to completing the signing of Inter Milan winger Antonio Candreva. Honestly, the new stadium will be great - but I love Stamford Bridge a lot.

If Chelsea do opt to rebuild Stamford Bridge they will probably need to temporarily relocate, with Wembley the most likely destination.

However, Spurs haven't had much success playing at Wembley in recent seasons, recording a number of underwhelming performances at the home of England's national side. I think there is a big difference.

"I think first of all, the club looks for the type of player and they worry about the nationality second". It was very cold and you don't feel the passion of the fans because the stand was very far from the pitch. They have Rudiger and the injured Bakayoko as well so another couple of players and getting the injured players back on the bench and in the team will make the squad look better.

In fact, the transition had been so smooth that towards the second half of the season nearly every football lover was convinced that Chelsea would be crowned champions by the end of the season barring some divine intervention. "It's different", said Conte, who was in charge of Juventus when they moved to a new home in 2011.

"For sure, it is not the same when you don't play in your stadium".
