In one of his first interviews as Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte said that every manager must be a tailor in order to find the right fit for his players. The manager yet again reiterated that after the win against Crystal Palace.
In his post-match press conference, Conte said: “Before the season I said one thing: the manager must be a tailor. They must try to find the right fit for your team. It wasn’t easy to arrive and understand the characteristics of my players very soon. I needed a bit of time.
“The most important thing is the mentality, a strong mentality. Also, at work during the week – tactical work, physical work, technical work, analysis work, good food – we touched different aspects to try to improve.
“You can bring your idea of football but if you haven’t the players who follow this idea it’s very difficult for a manager.”
