New Chelsea manager Antonio Conte’s passion and energy has never been in doubt, with his animated displays on the sidelines during every match, be it club football or international football. Even David Beckham loves it. But Conte demands the same passion and dedication from his players and other coaching staff, and anybody who does not give his all invites the axe from the “Don.”
Conte, who has been given a 3-year contract by Chelsea, has been holding double training sessions from the first day itself. The pre-season had started very late last season, which meant the players were not up to the required fitness levels. That was the main reason for Chelsea’s terrible start to last season, which eventually resulted in manager Jose Mourinho being sacked.
