Managerial geniuses, they’re just like us!

Antonio Conte has remade Chelsea into a title-winning force in less than a year, and the Blues boss is riding high professionally.

Conte, 47, was linked with a move back home to lead Inter Milan, which seems ridiculous given his recent success. And it is, though Conte admitted life apart from his family has been anything but simple.

From Sky Sports:

“The only problem for me is that the family is missing me for sure. ... They stay in Italy and I am working for the future to try to bring them here and to stay together, because my family is missing me. The story [that he could leave] tells this, but I am not worried.”

There’s likely nothing to this, but file this away just in case.
