CAIRO – 19 April 2018: Chelsea manager Antonio Conte received a surprising phone call on Wednesday during his press conference ahead of the game against Burnley in the Premier League.
“It was my wife; always in the worst moment. I'm sorry," Conte told the reporters.
Conte switched off his phone and apologized to the reporters after the incident, revealing that he would be annoyed if that had happened to one of them.
“You can give me a fine! I'm sorry, because I would be annoyed if it happened to one of you," Conte said.
Conte and his team are preparing to face Burnley away on Thursday night and they hope to reduce the eight-point gap with fourth-placed Tottenham Hotspurs to secure a spot in the Champions League next season.
“I think we have to try until the end to reach this target (top four). We must have the will to fight; we must have the desire to try to take this target,” added Conte.
