Antonio Conte is reportedly set to take Chelsea training today, as our pre-season campaign gets underway.
Those who were not involved in the World Cup this summer have now returned to Cobham. Over the past few days, they have undergone various fitness tests ahead of the start of pre-season.
Today (Monday), pre-season begins. Many of us thought this to be the day that Maurizio Sarri would begin educating his new squad on his ideas and philosophies. It’s not. It’s just another day at the office under Conte.

The fact that our manager taking training is even noteworthy sums up what a great big mess we find ourselves in. It’s still unclear whether or not Conte will be here come the start of next season.
He’s here now, though, and we get the feeling that the players are going to be suffering on the training ground over the next few days.
