Antonio Conte has been a big hit in just his debut season in Chelsea and the Premier League. This has prompted rumours linking him with a return to his homeland, with Inter Milan rumoured to be interested in landing the Italian.
Chelsea goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois has urged the club to keep the passionate goalkeeper, as he revealed that he doesn’t believe the rumours and Conte wouldn’t want to leave Chelsea.
Courtois also revealed that he’s expecting a tougher campaign next season, but he wants the best in the league and Champions League.
“The talks are maybe just rumours, I don’t know,” Courtois said. “But he’s important for the club and I think the club knows that, so they will do whatever to have a happy ending.
“Maybe the league will be tougher next season. It depends on other teams but I think next season we can have a big say in the Premier League and the Champions League. We’ll be fine.
“You see him on the line shouting and giving us instructions as a team and that gives a good feeling to the players on the pitch so you don’t switch off.
“He’s a manager with a lot of passion and he’s always good for all the players to see a manager who’s close to us.”
