Antonio Conte has played down speculation that he could take over AC Milan next season
Antonio Conte was linked with a move to Milan in the summer, when he spoke openly about how he had missed his family and struggled to settle in his first season in London.
Those rumours have flared up again recently with current Milan coach Vincenzo Montella under pressure due to unsatisfactory results
When asked to comment on the rumours by Sky Sport Italia following Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Manchester United on Sunday, Conte stated he did not want to think about such speculation.
“Oh come on, forget it,” he said. “Let’s try to remain focused because, as I’ve said, between now and the end of the year, it’s going to be a difficult path to follow in every sense because, look, every single day another story and another thing comes out, and they like this kind of situation here.
“I’m so focused on Chelsea — I’ve got to do the best I can for Chelsea. I know we’ve got a very hard, intense season ahead, but if we have the spirit and the enthusiasm that we’ve seen today, we’ll try to fight against everything and against everybody.”p
