Chelsea boss Conte admits he's homesick for Italy: I won't stay here too long

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has again admitted he is homesick for Italy.

The Italian only extended his Blues deal until 2019 after revealing plans to move wife Elisabetta and daughter Vittoria to England.

Conte hinted a move to the San Siro could be next for him, telling Radio Anch'io Sport: “I have a longing for Italy, that's beyond any doubt.

“It's not in my head to stay abroad for too long. It's good to have beautiful experiences, but I intend to go back to Italy one day.

“China? No, absolutely not. Bundesliga? It's always difficult to predict the future. Let's just say that a coach is a temporary worker.

“It depends on the results, but there's desire on my part to try to do the best I can, finishing one project and then finding the right one to continue. I miss Italy, that's a fact.

“Still, this experience is helping me so much. I'd also like to become a sporting director in the future."
