Chelsea boss Antonio Conte says he is happy with the attitude and behaviour of his players.
The Italian spent his first week in charge of Chelsea and is upbeat ahead of the new season despite losing his side's pre-season friendly game against Rapid Vienna.
A number of players involved at the Euro 2016 Championship have joined the rest of the squad this week.
New signing N'Golo Kante is expected to feature next week at the International Champions Cup.
"I am very happy because I am finding the players with the right attitude and the right behaviour," Conte told reporters on Tuesday.
"They are great workers and this is very important because we need to have a bit of time to go into a new idea of football, and a new method of work with different tactical, physical and mental aspects.
"It's also important to have a bit of time for me to know the players and for the players to know me. In the Euros I had a finished team. Now we are building.
"In this moment it's normal I have a bit of difficulty with this change because with Chelsea we are beginning our season.
"I am getting to know a lot of new players and I'm bringing them a new idea of football. We need a bit of time but I saw a lot of positive things this week.
"And then today [Cesc] Fabregas, Pedro, [Juan] Cuadrado, [Gary] Cahill and [Cesar] Azpi arrived.
"This is important because I need to have the complete group to work, and to transfer my ideas to all the players."
