Chelsea FC manager Antonio Conte has revealed that sometime he hate being a manager because of the tiresome workload it involves. but also conceded that he can’t go a day without the world’s famous sport.
In an interview with style magazine GQ, given after it named the Italian one of its ‘Men of the Year’, Conte clarified that in spite of the fact that he has dependably had his eye on being a football manager, it still frustrates him when he is forced to pick between his job and his family.
‘I always felt I would do this, that this would be my life. But sometimes I hate it, you know. Sometimes I hate this job because sometimes you lose your life,’ he explained.
‘If you want to do this job, to be a good coach, a great coach, you must sacrifice your life and sometimes I hate this. I have to think football 18 hours a day. I love it and I hate it. It is everything.’
Nevertheless, the 48-year-old said that despite the sacrifices and the workload, he couldn’t live without football as it has been a major part of his life for as long as he can remember.
‘To be without football for a whole day is impossible…I was born with a ball in the belly of my mother’, he said. ‘My mind is always on football.’
