Antonio Conte has admitted that he is desperate to experience the Champions League with Chelsea.
The Blues appointed the Italian coach as their new manager at the start of the 2016-17 season following Guus Hiddink’s departure from the west London club.
However, the Chelsea boss switched to a 3-4-3 formation and the Blues haven’t looked back since after losing one game in 20 outings in the Premier League.
The Blues were 13 points clear of fifth-placed Arsenal ahead of their clash against West Ham United at London Stadium on Monday night.
Speaking to Chelsea’s website about returning to the Champions League next term, Conte expressed his desire to sample Europe’s premier club competition.
“I watched Manchester City against Monaco because I wanted to breathe the atmosphere again and to feel this type of game.
“For me and my players, I think the Champions League must be an appointment for us every year.
“The Champions League must be our home and for this reason we are putting all our strength into playing in it next season. It’s a great competition for every single player, club and manager. We want to stay there and try to fight to win it.”
