UK: Antonio Conte speaks to press as new Chelsea FC manager

United Kingdom, Stamford Bridge
July 14, 2016 at 17:21 GMT +00:00 · Published

Former Italian footballer Antonio Conte spoke to the press at Stamford Bridge, on Thursday, upon the announcement that he had been appointed the new manager of Chelsea Football Club. Conte agreed a three year contract in April, replacing the club’s former manager Jose Mourinho.

Conte confirmed that John Terry would continue as team captain of the team. He praised Terry’s close affiliation with the club saying, “He is a great player with a great personality, with a great charisma, I like to speak with him because I know that he knows the club, the right spirit to play in this club and, for me, he is an important player.”

Conte arrived at Chelsea having just left his job as manager for Italy following the Euro 2016 tournament.

Chelsea finished 10th in the Premier League last season, during which the club was mired in scandal after a public dispute between Mourinho and the team’s doctor Eva Carneiro, which resulted in Carnerio suing the former manager for discrimination and constructive dismissal.
