Antonio Conte has moved to play down recent reports that he is unhappy at Chelsea by revealing details of his personal life in London, while he also insisted that his working relationship with the board is amicable.

There have been some reports that Conte and the club's transfer chiefs have had a rift over the players that have been brought into the side this summer

However, Conte has remained in charge with mixed fortunes, losing at home to Burnley before beating Tottenham at Wembley last weekend.

The Blues boss offered a rare insight into his personal life as his insisted he is happier than ever as he adjusts to life in England.

"No. Honestly, I'm very calm," Conte responded when asked why he seems grumpier than normal. "I'm relaxed much better than last season. Yeah, much better. Because you learn. You learn also to work for the new club. Last season was my first time. Now, after a year of experience, I learned a lot from the past.

"For this reason, I think I am more relaxed and am enjoying better the situation than last season. That's my impression, anyway. Honestly. Yes, yes. I am still having language lessons. Two hours, three days a week. After one season you start to learn a lot of situations.

Conte faced fresh doubts over his future this week over as reports emerged from Germany that former Borussia Dortmund manager Thomas Tuchel was being lined up to replace the 47-year-old.

Chelsea quickly moved to deny it and Goal understands that no contact has been made between the Blues and anyone associated with Tuchel. Conte has also moved his family to London this season but admitted that he doesn't know where his wife Elisabetta has put his Premier League medal.
