Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has shaved off his beard following his daughter’s advice as she told him he was “looking older”.
Conte was first seen sporting stubble ahead of Saturday’s 4-0 win over West Brom and admitted his wife told him to spot a different look.
“I hope at the end of the season to finish with a big beard,” he told reporters last Friday.
However, the Italian is now back to his clean shave as his daughter disapproved of the beards.
He told the press this afternoon: “I wanted to try a new look but yesterday my daughter said it looked older with the beard. My daughter is more important than my wife.”
