Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has become the lastest manager to pay tribute to the terror attack victims after the atrocious events in Manchester, and spoke about his own experiences.
The Chelsea boss spoke about the families and the victims, and spoke about his time as Italy manager to boot.
Conte said:“Tomorrow we have to play an important game and can win an important trophy, but I don’t want to forget what happened in Manchester.
“We are very close (figuratively) to the families of people who died in Manchester.
“I had this situation when I was with the national team. We played a game the night Germany (in Hannover) played and they tried to put a bomb in the stadium.
“I think this situation, for sure, creates a bit of difficulty in your mind. But a game of football or a concert is a moment you must live with passion, with passion and enthusiasm.
“When this type of situation happens, for sure, you are a bit scared. But we must continue to live and face every situation in the right way.”
Conte knows what winning a double in his first season would mean, and is even thought to be getting a contract extension and a pay increase because of it.
He’s also highly thought of by other clubs around Europe, including Inter Milan, and that’s something Roman Abramovich is very aware of.
