Antonio Conte is one who’s known for his tactical diversity starting from his days at Bari in the Italian Serie B, and he has shown that in Chelsea so far, as he has played about 5 different formations, in about 4 months of Premier League football.
Speaking of his tactical switch, he told the Chelsea official website: “The first time I changed to this system was against Arsenal for the last 25 minutes, and then we continued with this idea of football. For sure in this month we have developed, we have worked a lot on this system, and for sure I have to say thanks to my players because they had the right concentration, the right attitude, the right will to stay more than before in the training sessions and now it is easier than one month ago. But we know we can improve a lot on different aspects – the pressure on the ball, quickly being more compact – for sure we have to improve.” Conte said.
The Italian then revealed that something is going on in England, with different manager’s coming in every season.
“I think in England something is changing because there are different coaches from different countries and they are bringing new different ideas and new methods and new philosophies of football, and I think this is very good for the English league.” Conte said.
