Blues manager Antonio Conte has revealed that he doesn’t intend to “stay abroad for too long”
The Chelsea boss says he is keen to return back to his Italian homeland.
Conte has achieved great success in his first campaign as manager away from Serie A, winning the Premier League title and reaching the final of the FA Cup.
The Blues are in the hunt to add more silverware to their cabinet this season, however, the former Juventus boss has cast doubt over his future in West London by admitting that he misses the Italian top flight.
“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.
“China? No, absolutely not. Bundesliga? It’s always difficult to predict the future. 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.”
Conte signed a new two-year contract in the summer to end growing speculation that he intended to quit the club.
