Antonio Conte insists that he’s able to make his players champions again and that Chelsea belongs in the Champions League.
However, after last season’s finish of 10th, the only way to improve the situation is persistence and hard work.
Conte states that wants to bring back “the right spirit” that is essential for Chelsea to get back to Champions League. With this in mind, the Chelsea manager gathers his best players to improve team’s results.
Whilst Conte looks set to improve the Chelsea team’s spirit, Britain is notorious for its serious attitude towards football, and, as such, British teams always like to possess the best players and be the strongest teams in Europe.
Conte’s team has another terrific new signing: 25 year old N’Golo Kanté, from Leicester City, is now a Chelsea new player after signing last week.
The first member of team to join Chelsea was Michy Batshuayi from Ligue 1 side Marseille, agreeing to a five-year contract for a £33m fee. Conte mentioned that new player is young, gifted and has good technique.
Kanté is famous for his integral role in the Foxes’ championship last season. Also he was a member of the France squad that failed to win at the UEFA 2016 European Football Championship, losing by an extra time Eder goal in the final vs Portugal earlier this month.
Signing a 5-year contract, Kanté mentioned that he is happy to join one of the biggest clubs in Europe and to work with Antonio Conte, who is a notoriously demanding coach.
Kanté’s joining is being called the best transfer of the year as the young player is already well known for his ability to win possession of the ball and to retain it.
During Euro 2016 Kanté, as a member of French team, starred against Romania (where was noticed for his passing, tacking and intercepting and the way he supplied the ball for Dmitri Payet). Sadly, he was later suspended and began his semi-final and final on the bench.
To Antonio Conte’s team N’Golo Kante comes with considerable experience: not least a Premier League winner’s medal and a tally of 8 international caps that is sure to increase in future years.
In an interview Conte stated that he plans to stay with his team – to play with them and to lose with them. He has a great passion in his life and wants to transfer it to his players and fans.
