Chelsea manager Antonio Conte left journalists without a clue for few minutes during his pre-match press conference yesterday as he paused to receive a phone call from his wife.
The Italian was about answering a question on the availability of Marcos Alonso for their must-win encounter against Burnley as the left back was charged by the FA with a violent conduct charge, when his phone rang.
As it turned out to be Conte’s wife, one journalist joked that it was for him to pick up the milk on the way home.
The former Juventus manager finding the funny side of it, went on to reply… “It was my wife. Always in the worst moment. I’m sorry.
“You can give me a fine! I’m sorry because I’d be annoyed if it happened to one of you”
Chelsea will be away to Burnley tomorrow in a match they have to win to have any chance getting into the top 4.
