Conte \'excited\' to come to CHELSEA

Published on: 03 July 2016

Speaking after Italy's defeat in Bordeaux to Germany, Antonio Conte stated he was excited to be joining Chelsea in the Premier League next season, although he admitted there was a time when he hoped his stay as Italy’s manager would extend beyond Euro 2016. He stated:

 "The decision to leave the national team after two years was taken early and I don't deny there were moments when I'd have liked to have the opportunity to continue. But, because of certain developments, I wasn't able to go back on that.

"In November I thought I was continuing with the national side," he added. "Then I told the president of the Italian football federation of the great opportunity to join Chelsea Football Club.

"I wanted to return to the cut and thrust of club football. Now, I have the opportunity to start this exciting adventure."
