"Unhappy" Chelsea star: I had a private chat with new manager Antonio Conte


Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has revealed he recently had a private conversation with new manager Antonio Conte.

The Spaniard is unhappy at the club and wants to make a return to the Spanish Liga according to recent reports.

But he was full of praise for the 46-year-old ahead of Monday's Euro 2016 game between Spain and Italy.

"He is a great coach and a winner," he told Gazzetta World.

"He told me what he wants to do at Chelsea but that will remain private.

"I really want to work with him but I want him to focus on Chelsea as quickly as possible.

"I hope that will start on Tuesday.

"I liked his Juventus side and I had watched them win, though I didn't tune in every week.

"I've watched more of them recently and he's also done a great job with the national team."
