​Conte refuses to be drawn on reported conflict with Chelsea board

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was asked about reports of friction between himself and the Chelsea hierarchy.

"This is normal. At the same time this is something I don't want to discuss with you.

"Nothing has changed. Nothing has changed.

"There was the summer, then after the summer. Nothing has changed," said Conte.

"Yes, I'm happy. I'm happy to work with my players, I'm happy to work for this club. I'm happy to try every day to put all myself for this job. I'm happy for this."

As to not having full control of transfer, the Italian's response was: "I think it's right to have this type of situation," he says.

"As I said before, I think I'm repeating every three days, I would be very happy to continue to work with my players.

"I'm repeating always the same thing. I'm the coach. My task is to try to do the best for this club, to try to improve my players for this club."
