Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has revealed that he’s also a fan of derby games.

The Chelsea manager who featured in many, during his playing days in Italy reveals that he loved playing in games like these.

“I liked these types of games, for sure,” the 47-year-old revealed. “They are not normal.

“In Italy, when we played the derby against Torino it wasn’t easy. I remember a lot of games like that when I was a footballer, not only as a manager. These games are unpredictable.

“It’s normal in Italy too to have very tough games when you play against the big teams: Juventus-Inter, Juventus-Milan, against Roma.

“In Italy, I can tell you about it from my experiences in these types of game against Torino, and when I played with Lecce against Bari – these games are very tough and the supporters feel this.

“For sure there is a fantastic intensity during the game.” Conte said.
