Conte was surprisingly linked with a return to his home country over the summer despite leading Chelsea to the Premier League title in his first year as manager. I have had handsome and formative experiences here, but I will definitely return to Italy. "I do not have to stay overseas for so long".
Asked me if he sees himself as a sporting director in the future, he said: "Well, I might".
Conte signed a new two-year contract in the summer to end growing speculation that he meant to quit the club. I don't know when but that's my objective. "It's always hard to predict the future, especially for us coaches because it's one of the riskiest jobs around - today you are in one place, tomorrow you are in another because you are dependent on results", he said.
"I have the will to finish a project, and then look for the right continuation of that".
"This experience is helping me so much".
"I'm improving in many ways and in the future I don't know, maybe I'd like to try something different, maybe be a director or something else".
Conte arrived in west London on the back of Italy to the quarter-finals of Euro 2016, where they were eliminated by world champions Germany on penalties. They live football like a celebration.
His side face a tricky tie away to Atletico Madrid in the Champions League on Wednesday before returning to Premier League action in a crunch game with Pep Guardiola's Manchester City in the Saturday evening kick-off.
