Antonio Conte believes it is hard to win trophies in England, warning managers looking to win easy trophies to avoid the premier league.
Chelsea sit fifth on the table, 25 points behind Manchester City, who are most likely going to be crowned champions.
The Blues crashed out of the Carabao Cup in semifinal, but will play the semifinal of the FA Cup, and Antonio Conte has conceded the tough duty of winning silverware in England.
“I think that every manager wants to win a trophy,” Conte said to reporters at Cobham Training Ground. “I must be honest, if you want to win trophies, maybe for important managers, it’s easier to go to another country — if you want to win easy trophies.
“In England, if you stay here, never, never will it be easy to win trophies. I think there is the club who judges the work of the manager. But, for sure, every manager wants to try and win a trophy.
“But, I think that every important manager wants to finish the season with a trophy. This is the truth. We work very hard to try and reach this target, but not only for myself: for the players, for the club, for our fans.
“When you are the coach in an important team, the target must be this. For sure, to reach this target, you need to have the possibility to reach this target in every season.”
