William Gallas: Why new manager Antonio Conte will bring a lot of rigour to Chelsea


Former Chelsea defender William Gallas believes new manager Antonio Conte will bring a lot of "rigour" at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues struggled to impose themselves in this season's Premier League campaign as they failed to even finish in the Top Four.

But the Frenchman says next season will be different as the Italian is a proven winner.

"It was very, very hard to see Chelsea in this position, especially since I spent five years there," Gallas told Omnisport.

"But it can happen, it can happen to the greatest clubs. I think next season will be another season. I hope that we will see Chelsea at the top.

"I knew it was not easy for them but seen from the outside, it was difficult to accept this situation. As I said, every season is different.

"Next season will be a new season for Chelsea.

"I think he [Conte] will bring his experience. He is a coach who likes to win competitions. He was able to prove it with Juve. I think he will bring a lot of rigour to this team of Chelsea."
