Conte admits Chelsea have missed Emenalo


Conte's side will also have one eye on next week's FA Cup final showdown against Manchester United at Wembley as the Blues look to try and end the season with a trophy.

Conte antagonized the Portuguese coach after reclaiming the Premier League crown at the first attempt by stating in July that he wanted to avoid "the Mourinho season" in this campaign.

Conte says he relishes the challenges of the job, which has left him at times questioning the Chelsea hierarchy publicly.

"For this reason, you have to know this and prepare in the right way".

Roman Abramovich, meanwhile, appears to be ready to replace Conte and Napoli's Maurizio Sarri and Luis Enrique are at the top of his wishlist.

"Don't forget two years ago they finish the season tenth, not in any finals and were eliminated in the last 16 [of the Champions League] against Paris Saint-Germain - it can happen". That's why in his pre-Newcastle conference, the Italian, while reiterating his desire to finish with a win, was keen to remind everyone that Chelsea's top-four fight was no longer in their hands.

"Now you can finish fifth; you start with a bit of an advantage on when you finished tenth".

The Italian signed a new contract, on improved terms, last July, but it was not an extension to the deal which runs until June 2019.

Emenalo is best remembered by many Chelsea fans for the rare interview he granted to the club's in-house TV channel immediately following Jose Mourinho's departure in December 2015, in which he coined the phrase "palpable discord" to describe the toxic atmosphere that had developed between the manager and his players.

"Then it will be the right moment for the person to understand the situation and take the best solution, find the solution in the best possible way".

"I will go to Milan for the (testimonial) game for Andrea Pirlo on the 21st", said the former Juventus coach.
