Antonio Conte has dropped a huge hint that he will not be at Chelsea for long.
The Italian who led Chelsea to the Premier League title in his first season at Chelsea has admitted he misses Italy a lot and plans to return to his home country in the nearest future.
The former Juventus manager was heavily linked with a move to Inter Milan in the summer but he snubbed the advances of the Italians to sign a new contract at Chelsea.
Surprisingly, his new contract wasn’t an extension but only an improved deal. And Conte has dropped a huge hint as to why he refused to commit his long-term future to the club, stating he wants to return to Italy someday.
“I miss it, that’s beyond doubt,” he said.
“Italy is my homeland, so once I have had some good experiences, formative experiences, important and life-changing experiences, I’ll be back. I don’t know when but that’s the aim.”
Chelsea fans may not be too comfortable with Conte’s comments as many of us were beginning to hope for managerial stability.
No manager has lasted more than two years at Chelsea and many were hoping Conte would do a Ferguson with us but the chances of that happening is very slim at the moment.
There were also several reports in the summer that he was unhappy with Chelsea’s transfer policy. All these are obviously pointing to the fact that Conte won’t be here for long.
