One thing that has been synonymous with Antonio Conte and his spell as a manager is his ability to manage a squad given to him.

Right from his days as Juventus manager, the Italian achieved so much success without really spending much, and he has brought that same mentality to Stamford Bridge.

He has overseen two transfer windows at Chelsea, and in the two transfer windows, he was particular about paying the right price for a player.

In an interview with Chelsea pitch owners, Conte was asked: On recent transfer fees, you said, ’We are talking about an amount of money which is not right.’ Where does your conviction about this come from? Upbringing? Faith?

The Italian answered: “I had a young education very tough with my parents. They learn me… no they teach me always the real value of the money, and to understand money is very important but not all. I think it’s not easy for the players, for the manager, whenever they have a really good offer, to refuse this offer. When you sign in a team like Chelsea, for example, and it’s a good situation, you can work, stay with your family. And I repeat the money is important, but not all.”
