Milan rule out move for Antonio Conte

Antonio Conte

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has hailed the improvement shown by Michy Batshuayi and says the striker will have more opportunities to shine this season. "For me to have my family with me is very important".

"For two weeks I am reading wrong things". I don't see a problem with him. Another situation I want to clarify, my family stays here with me, not in Italy. "I'm very happy they are with me", said Conte ahead of today's Premier League visit to Crystal Palace. 'This season there is my job but I go to my house, with my daughter and wife, and we can take the vehicle and try to visit London, Kingston or discover new restaurants.

The other off-field issue that clouded Chelsea's worldwide break was academy youngster Charly Musonda's decision to vent his frustration at a lack of first-team opportunities this season with an Instagram post that was widely seen before being deleted.

Conte spoke publicly of missing both several times last season, but after confirming on Friday that they are now living in a house in Cobham as a family, he added that he is very happy they will now get to share the "fantastic experience" of life in London with him. I think Charly understood his mistake and he has to continue to work hard to improve himself, his physicality and his tactical understanding, but he's working well. "He's a talented player".

"His mind should be focused on the pitch, not social media". I told him this and my task is to help him always to find the right way and not the wrong way.

Conte now has injury problems, with midfield duo N'Golo Kante and Danny Drinkwater, and striker Alvaro Morata all missing for Saturday's game away against Crystal Palace.

"We are talking also to adapt a player who is important as a central defender". This season could be a good opportunity for the young players to play with Chelsea.
