Chelsea didn’t participate in the Champions League this season due to the struggles of last season. We ended up in the 10th position and missed out on European football entirely.
Antonio Conte was tasked with restoring Chelsea’s lost glory and so far he has done a fantastic job.
In his pre-match press conference ahead of the game against Everton, the Italian was asked if he’d get a bonus for qualifying Chelsea for the Champions League.
Conte jokingly answered: “No, only if we win [league]. When your team is able to reach this target I think it is a good achievement. Don’t forget it is only four teams that can play in the next Champions League, with the six teams, between Chelsea, Tottenham, Manchester City, United, Arsenal and Liverpool two strong teams don’t play next season in the Champions League.”
