Homesick already? Chelsea boss Conte misses Italy

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte admits that he misses Italy and will return before long, while also ruling out a stint in China.

Now in his second season in London, the former Juventus boss says that manager’s job is always temporary.

"I have a longing for Italy, that’s beyond any doubt," he told Radio Anch’io Sport. "It’s not in my head to stay abroad for too long. It’s good to have beautiful experiences, but I intend to go back to Italy one day.

"Let’s just say that a Coach is a temporary worker. It depends on the results, but there’s desire on my part to try to do the best I can, finishing one project and then finding the right one to continue.

"I miss Italy, that’s a fact. Still, this experience is helping me so much. I’d also like to become a sporting director in the future."
