Conte thinking about present

Antonio Conte believes it is pointless to think of what might have been at Juventus, choosing instead to focus on the present.

The 47-year-old was the Old Lady’s boss from 2011-14, winning the Scudetto in each of his three seasons in charge.

The Bianconeri have invested heavily this summer as they look to translate their domination of Italian football to the European arena, but Conte refused to be drawn on whether he would have relished such financial backing in Turin.

“I wish the best to everyone, I don’t want to think about what might have been, I’m thinking about the present,” Conte told reporters.

“Juventus are the team of reference in Italy and over the years they have developed a lot.

“This summer they have reinforced even further, it is clear what their targets are in the Champions League.”

Conte then asked fans of his new club Chelsea for patience as he looks to turn the Premier League’s fortunes around.

“There is a lot of work to do and I ask for a little patience because no one has a magic wand.”
