There’s a saying that ‘beside every successful man is a woman’, and so many times this season, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has spoken of him being far away from his wife and daughter.
The Italian has now confirmed that his family will be joining him before the start of the new season.
“Honestly for sure this season wasn’t easy for me about my family, because we decided my wife and my daughter would stay in Italy to allow my daughter to finish school,” Conte said.
“But, for sure, next season our intention is to keep all the family in England and stay together. It will be a good opportunity, also, for my daughter to live in another country. To go to school in another country is a fantastic opportunity, and a great gift for her.”
Asked if he and his wife have already begun looking at houses and schools in West London, Conte replied: “Yes, but don’t forget that my wife … we chose the school also last season, an Italian school, and this is the last problem [to solve]. In England, and above all in London, there are wonderful schools for the kids.”
