Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has confirmed that his family would be moving to England soon as he feels difficult to stay away from his family. Conte was appointed as the Chelsea manager at the start of the 2016/17 season and has already won the Premier League title in his debut season. The chance is there, to do a domestic double, as the Blues take on Arsenal in the final of the Emirates FA Cup later this month.

Conte moved to England after his appointment but his family remained in England as he cited his daughter’s education as the reason for his family’s extended stay in Italy, despite his absence.

However, it looks like his family is ready to arrive in England as he says his daughter has completed her school. He also revealed that they’d been looking for a good school for their daughter and says that London is such a good place to live in.

Conte was quoted by ESPN,

“Honestly for sure, this season wasn’t easy for me about my family because we decided my wife and my daughter would stay in Italy to allow my daughter to finish school. But, for sure, next season our intention is to keep all the family in England and stay together. It will be a good opportunity, also, for my daughter to live in another country. To go to school in another country is a fantastic opportunity, and a great gift for her.”

Asked if he and his wife have already begun looking at houses and schools in West London, Conte replied:

“Yes, but don’t forget that my wife … we chose the school also last season, an Italian school, and this is the last problem [to solve]. In England, and above all in London, there are wonderful schools for the kids.”

Victory over relegated Sunderland on the final day at Stamford Bridge will see the Blues become the first team in the competition’s history to win 30 matches in a season, and Conte does not believe the feat will be easily repeated.

He added: “For my players and me, the most important thing was we won the league. To win the league is a great achievement. Then we have the possibility to write our name in history with this target, this achievement. Thirty wins… it won’t be easy to repeat this achievement in the future. We must be focused, we must be concentrated to try to win on Sunday. I was at the Arsenal game against Sunderland in midweek and they did not find it easy. Don’t forget Sunderland won at Hull City, so it won’t be easy to try and do this.”

Conte is one of the very few managers who have won the league title in their debut season in England. Surely, Chelsea have become a force to reckon with in recent years, thanks to Roman Abramovich. It looks like Conte is here for the long-term as he has decided to move his family to England as well.

It is all good at Chelsea FC for now!
