Antonio Conte will return to Stamford Bridge for the first time since he left the club 4 seasons ago. Conte spent 2 seasons at Chelsea after signing from the Italy national team in Euro 2016. The Italian manager led the club to an English Premier League title in his first season.
Conte also won an FA Cup trophy in his second season before he left for Inter Milan after a serious fallout with the club’s hierarchy.
The saga with Diego Costa where he sent the Spanish striker a message that his services were no longer needed at the club led to Conte’s dismissal also.
Chelsea will welcome Tottenham Hotspur to Stamford Bridge in the league cup this Wednesday, a team Antonio Conte is now coaching.
“We are checking a couple of situations about COVID concerning players and we’ll see. We are not sure 100% whether they are going to miss the game. It will be good and emotional to come back to Stamford Bridge.”
Antonio Conte said;
“It will be great to come back to Stamford Bridge. It’s the first time after I left Chelsea. What I can say is I spent two amazing seasons, I created a lot of friendships in the club. We did a really important, good job. I also enjoyed the work there.”
