Chelsea fullback Azpilicueta: Players happy with Conte touchline intensity

Chelsea fullback Cesar Azpilicueta says the players welcome the passion of their manager on the touchline.

Azpilicueta says he has really enjoyed working with Antonio Conte, adding that, as a full-back who has thus far played one half of each game in very close proximity to the Italian, he can't fail to notice his touchline demeanour.

"He's a very intense manager during games, it's like he's playing in it," the 27-year-old told chelseafc.com.

"He shows a lot of passion and intensity, and he wants us players to have the same feeling. He's the kind of manager who kicks every ball, he's running after it all the time. It shows his good spirit."
