Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has revealed his coaching process was not welcomed with open hands by his players when he first took over at Stamford Bridge this season.

The former Juventus boss has enjoyed a brilliant first season in the Premier League since succeeding Jose Mourinho as permanent Chelsea boss in the summer. After finishing 10th last season, the Stamford Bridge outfit has turned things around in a remarkable fashion under the Italian tactician. They have won 16 of their last 18 Premier League games to move nine points clear of Tottenham Hotspur at the top of the table. The brilliant season also saw them winning 13 games in a row before it was ended by Mauricio Pochettino’s men last month.

The Chelsea players are looking like a well-oiled unit under Conte and are performing better than ever. However, Conte’s journey with his players did not begin on a good note. The former Italy manager has revealed he initially struggled to make an impression on his team and said that his players showed no interest in his video sessions.

Speaking at the Premier League show, Conte said: “Honestly, my players, they are not used to it.”

“At the start we found a bit of difficulty because after five minutes, ten minutes… [They get bored? – to which Conte nods]

“Very difficult but then when we started to see in the right way. When we watch the game, not to find who is the fault because we conceded a goal, no. Only to improve.

“The most important thing for me is to be a team. Every single player must put their talent into the team,” he added.

    An avid sports lover, i always wanted to pursue a career in football. But just like the millions out there i did not put in the hard work needed to achieve my dream and now i have become a fan instead of the player. Anyway, writing for sports has kept me closer to this field. One more thing, yours sincerely is a die-hard Liverpool fan. You will never walk alone.
