Chelsea boss Conte: I'm looking to yoga to calm down on touchline

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has turned new age and taken up yoga so to be calmer on the touchline!

Conte is often left in physical pain from the strain of his wild antics in the technical area during a game.

So he is turning to ancient relaxation techniques like yoga and Chelsea have even employed a specialist chill-out coach to help him de-stress.

Conte said: “There is a person and I'm grateful to my club to have this type of person here.

"We do stretching and also at the end of the session a bit of relaxing, 10 minutes. This is good.

“I like and am very interested in yoga, I like to read books about these topics."

He added: "As I get older I will start to become more calm and try to sit down for maybe five minutes.

"I'd like to start to sit down during a game."
