"When you join a different league from your own and compete for the first time, you need to understand certain dynamics; you need to bring your own ideas to your new environment.
"It was difficult and challenging but I have really enjoyed it because I feel like I'm a better manager compared to before. We must not forget that last season we didn't play in any European competition, it's important for any team to play in this big tournament [the Champions League].
"Our aim is to give it our best shot, to try our hardest and to go as far as possible."
Conte added: "We know that this game will be tough. In the first game that we played at home, I think, at the end, it was a good result.
"But for sure, I'd like to play better and we will try to do this in the game against Roma.
"As a player, sometimes I won [at the Stadio Olimpico], sometimes I lost, as a coach it happens the same - because Roma are a strong team, one of the best in Italy. To play against them is not easy."
