Antonio Conte refused Sky Sports interview to not cause Chelsea problems
Sky Sports reporter Geoff Shreeves has revealed the Italian refused to do a pre-Spurs interview fearing his words may cause a stir
Shreeves says of Conte's refusal: ''The situation with the interview on Thursday just added more uncertainty to the situation regarding Antonio Conte and his position. As normal we would sit down with him, we always submit our questions in advance, because his English is still far from perfect.
''A word came back to us that the questions, fairly standard, to be honest, he couldn’t answer them because he felt if he was truly honest, he would cause problems for the club, so therefore it’s better that he didn’t speak about it, particularly on the eve of such a big game.
''He seems quite happy to say one or two things in a press conference but in terms of an open and honest explanation as regards to his position, he didn’t want to entertain it.''
