Antonio Conte has experienced first hand how difficult the game could be in the English Premier League. The Italian guided Chelsea to the Premier League title in just his first year, but his second year has been quite dismal for Chelsea’s standard.
The Chelsea boss is currently under intense pressure, and rumours have constantly suggested that he’ll be shown the exit door at the end of the current campaign.
Conte has admitted that the pressure is very high, but has also hinted that his wife has been helpful to him in these times.
“As you know very well, the family live the same emotion with me,” said the Blues boss.
“Especially when you have this type of job and it’s normal a lot of time to transfer your emotion in your house with your family.
“But I think for this reason I am very lucky to have a person [his wife] very close to me that I need in every moment – positive, negative – to face the situation in the best possible way.
“It’s very important to have the right person, because this job brings you a lot of pressure. It’s not easy to live close to the manager. But you find a great person close to the manager. You can’t see, but this person is very important for us – for me and for the other coaches.”
