Chelsea boss Antonio Conte insists unity in the team is important if we want to win titles.
“If you want to win something during the season, it’s important to create a unity in the team,” Conte said. “To create this unity between the players, the staff, the club, you have to have a good spirit. I think we are showing this is one of the most important things that has led us to the top of the table.
“In every team I managed, I always tried to build the right spirit because it is of fundamental importance if you want to have a good season. It is not easy to create and before you arrive at creating a good spirit, you have to pass different steps but I am pleased to see this unity in my team.
“When you start the season and arrive at a new club, it is not easy because you have to bring your habits, your mentality, your philosophy and also you have to make decisions on some of the players – who starts the game, who goes on the bench, who is in the stands?
“You create the spirit day by day and step by step, with your work, with your decisions, with your behaviours and the players’ behaviours. Also you must know that you have to put in a lot of time to create this.
“It’s important to trust in the work because only the work can improve the situation. For sure it is important to have great players and in my team, I have great players with great humility to work and try to improve the different situations and different tactical aspects.”
