The Chelsea boss is reportedly becoming more and more frustrated with the top brass and his mood was further worsened after Arsenal beat his side in the Community Shield. Conte collected his runners up medal with the rest of his squad and was spotted engaging in a pretty frosty handshake with two of Chelsea’s most influential bosses.

Chelsea’s technical director, Michael Emenalo, and Chelsea chairman, Bruce Buck, were on hand to offer their commiserations to their players and congratulations to Arsenal during the trophy presentation.
Conte acknowledged the Chelsea heads, but the handshake was anything but warm between the Blues manager and the men who control the purse strings at Stamford Bridge.
The Italian offers a limp left hand to Emenalo and then Buck as he continues on quickly to retrieve his medal.
Conte cut a frustrated figure on the touchline and then after the game as Arsenal came from behind to claim victory over their London rivals and the reigning Premier League champions.
It is perfectly reasonable Conte was merely frustrated and wanted to get out of Wembley as quickly as possible, but the video will add fuel to the fire the fiery manager is unhappy.
Chelsea have added several names to their squad with Antonio Rudiger and Alvaro Morata arriving for big sums.
But, Conte is reportedly unhappy with the size of his squad and was furious when Chelsea missed out on Romelu Lukaku to Manchester United.
Morata did little to improve his manager’s mood when he missed a crucial penalty in the shoot-out.
Chelsea have endured a dismal pre-season with the defeat to Arsenal following losses to Bayern Munich and Inter.
