Chelsea utility player Nathan Ake spoke highly of Antonio Conte in his interview with the Guardian.

The 22-year-old spent the first half of the just concluded season with Bournemouth before being recalled by Antonio Conte in January.

Ake revealed that Conte surprised him when he made the phone call in January, asking him to return to Stamford Bridge.

He then revealed his likeness for the Italian, as he told the Guardian: “I really like him. He called me in the office straight away on the first day, explaining how we play, where he sees me, which is more left-side centre-half, but in the centre if needed and sometimes as a left‑wing back. I think the first two weeks I still needed to adjust but after then you know everything you need to do because we’re so well-drilled.”
