Antonio Conte signed on as Chelsea boss in April, and was today officially unveiled as the new Chelsea boss in a press conference.
Chelsea fans were looking forward to getting a glimpse of what to expect from Conte’s reign at the helm of the club, with the new Blues boss fielding a number of questions from both English and Italian journalists.
The press conference lacked the extravagance of previous incarnations, a-la Jose Mourinho, but that is exactly what Chelsea bosses wanted. After a disappointing season last year, the boss simply wants to get back to work.
Despite the relaxed and calm nature of the press conference, there were a number of key takeaways; many of which impressed the Chelsea faithful
In fact, Chelsea fans were unanimous in their positive response to Conte…
Antonio Conte thanks the media + his translator and leaves. A great first press conference.

Conte conducted himself very well – no mention of playing young players, but we’ll see. Should get a gist of things in pre-season. #CFC
