The Italian was dismissed as Blues manager despite having done lots of great jobs for the side
Chelsea will take on Tottenham Hotspur tonight for their EFL Cup clash with their former Manager, Conte now in charge of Spurs.
Blues came off a 2-2 draw with Liverpool over the past weekend and finding a win against Conte’s men will be a major boost to the side.
But it definitely won’t be an easy tie for Tuchel and his men against Conte who has shown to be a very experienced manager.
Since leaving Chelsea back in 2018, Conte has proven to be an exceptional manager with Inter Milan, ending Juve’s run of dominance.
Ahead of the game against Chelsea tonight, the 52-year-old took his time to reflect on his Chelsea sack.
“For sure when a club decides to go in a different way and decides not to give you the opportunity to continue working you can be disappointed.”
“But I think you have to respect the decision and for this reason I consider the Chelsea experience a great experience for me.”
“The experience in Chelsea improved me a lot as a person and as a coach because when you have experience in a different country and you learn a different culture, a different situation to manage for sure it makes you much better than before.”
“I think we did a fantastic job with Chelsea but sometimes it’s not enough. When it happens that the club decides to send you away, you have to show great respect for the decision.”
