Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has set a return to the Champions League as the target for the club in the new season.
The Italian has taken over at Stamford Bridge after they finished a disappointing 10th in the Premier League last season meaning no European football for them next season and Conte says they must return to the Champions League, which is he says is the club’s ‘home’.
“I want our fans to be very proud about the players and the manager, it’s very important,” he was quoted on Goal.
“Usually when there are these bad seasons it means there are many problems but the past is not important for me, for the club, for the players.
“What is important is the present, we have to fight together to come back and fight for the title. It’s important to stay together and overcome this bad period for Chelsea, to come back to play the Champions League, because it’s Chelsea’s home.”
“We must work a lot.
“We come after a bad season, after a 10th-place [finish] and we need to come back very soon in the right position because Chelsea is a great team in England and in the world.”
