Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is said to be a hard trainer, and the Italian places so much emphasis on work and having his players fit for the rigours of a tough season.
Summer signing Alvaro Morata has revealed that he tends to take a nap after each training, and the nap usually ends up as a long sleep.
Asked about the effects of Conte’s training methods, Morata said: “You arrive home [after training] and a nap is necessary.
“The problem is that you take a nap and you’ve lost your day.
“You wake up and it seems that you’ve already lost the day because it’s already night.”
Morata scored the winning goal in Sunday’s 1-0 victory over Manchester United, and has scored eight goals in all competitions for Chelsea this season.
He can indeed say Conte’s methods is having a good impact on him.
