It seems Chelsea boss Antonio Conte needed to reassured by the board that they were all on the same path.
“For every manager it is important to explain your idea,” Conte said as quoted on Daily Mail.
“It’s very important that the club understand your idea and the club is ready also to work together, to try together, and to have this solid foundation. I can want this, but if I’m alone it’s very difficult to do this.
“For sure, my decision was always to stay with Chelsea and continue this work. But you know very well that our job is not simple and anything can happen during our path and our career.
“My desire, and the club’s, was to continue this work and, for this reason I renew a contract. Now it’s right to start to work together and it’s very important to know that there’s a lot of work to do.”
