Chelsea boss Antonio Conte talks about how tough life in England is

While events on the pitch were successful, the Italian endured a tough time off it away from wife Elisabetta and daughter Vittoria.

The Italian is committed to the champions until 2019 but appeared to fuel speculation of an earlier departure with a recent interview in Italy in which he was quoted as saying: 'Not a doubt in my mind that I will be home before long'. I always felt I would do this, that this would be my life.

Even though Milan spent £150m on 11 players in the summer, they are now seventh in the Italian top tier, nine points behind leaders Napoli. Sometimes I hate this job, because sometimes you lose your life.

'I like to have this great feeling with our fans, our supporters and I don't see problems.

Rex Tillerson cleans up after Trump on Iran but dodges 'castration' questions
Rex Tillerson on Sunday assured in a national television that President Trump has not " castrated " him on the job, joking that he has "checked" to make sure.

"Every coach, when they start, they work with the club and hope they will stay for a long time and build something important. I did an interview two weeks ago and I'm sure the translation was wrong because in the interview I only said that one day in the future I would like to go back to Italy - one day in the future", said Conte.

Conte now has injury problems, with midfield duo N'Golo Kante and Danny Drinkwater, and striker Alvaro Morata all missing for Saturday's game away against Crystal Palace.

"Kante, we are going to do a scan next week to check his situation, if he is improving", said Conte. His previous scan suggested maybe 20-25 days. "When [you] want to write something it is important to write the truth and my family stays here, not in Italy". "We only have [Tiemoue] Bakayoko and [Cesc] Fabregas available".

We've also heard a lot of narratives related to Conte being at odds with Chelsea club leadership, butting heads with his superiors and therefore being on the hot seat.
