"I don't have any problem with it, we knew it was happening".
Kante was a key component of Leicester City's shock title win last season and has been a driving force behind Chelsea's triumph in 2016-17. "He has the right personality, and has great experience after working with many managers, and he has won a lot".
A new graphic from SBO looks into the owners of Premier League football teams, and just how much they've paid into their clubs - with the top figure being £2 billion, Roman Abramovich's investment into Chelsea FC. But I think it's right, this situation, in his mind, mustn't finish.
"My management career was like climbing a mountain".
Conte made wholesale changes to his starting eleven for the midweek win over Watford and with an FA Cup final against Arsenal to think about, I think he'll continue to field a weakened side on Sunday.
"I'd always thought of him as a champion, a great player, and, for sure, John Terry is one of the best defenders in the world", said Conte, who has given the veteran only five Premier League starts.
"For me it is very important that every single player who wants to stay at Chelsea has the pleasure to stay at Chelsea".
Antonio Conte grateful Chelsea players embraced his methods
After about 10 games, he made the change, he went from a back four to a back three and since then, they have been very good. Conte added: "We had a path, a very hard path, this season so it's important to enjoy the win".
The 36-year-old scored his 67th goal on his 716th appearance, against Watford, on Monday and Conte described the player as "a legend at this club". "He is still strong and the moment I called him to play he showed this".
Became the first player to win back-to-back titles with different clubs since Eric Cantona and also landed both Footballer of the Year awards.
We've finally reached Championship Sunday in the Premier League - except the champions, Chelsea, have already been crowned. "He worked a lot, with many coaches, and I have the pleasure to work with him in this season".
But it was a tough day for relegated Sunderland who finished the season bottom of the league on 24 points compared with their hosts' 93. Also to celebrate John [Terry], it will be very important.
"I kind of negotiated with him to play 26 minutes and come off, it was more important for the players that are probably going to play the cup final that they get their legs sharpened up again before that game".
The reception was rousing as Chelsea supporters and Abramovich applauded the talisman as took his leave from the pitch he has known as "home" for his entire playing career. Next season we have to play in the Champions League again and we start the season as champions, so for sure it will be a hard season.
"It's great to finish the season in this way, to celebrate a fantastic season".
