Chelsea face Inter Milan next in the International Champions Cup and for Antonio Conte, it will be a game against close friend Luciano Spalletti.
Conte said: “Inter have taken one of the best coaches, Luciano is a friend, a really good coach and a great buy for Inter to have this coach. The owners are very strong and trying to build something important for the future. I am happy for Luciano and looking forward to seeing him on Saturday.”
Conte and Spalletti have been friends from their time in Italy, but they’d keep their friendship aside when their teams enter the pitch in Singapore on Saturday.
It’s been a mixed pre-season so far for Antonio Conte – a good display against Arsenal that got everyone talking, followed by an unconvincing display against Bayern Munich.
