Conte happy to let Chelsea use dressing-room music to keep title charge on track

Date Posted,April 29, 2017

Antonio Conte has told his blue ­warriors to pump up the volume and keep their title bid staying alive.

Italian boss Conte still finds the ‘boom, boom, boom’ culture of English dressing-room ­music quite strange, ­compared to what he was used to in his homeland. But if it fires up his players to be in the right state of mind, then they have his ­blessing to play whatever they like.

The 47-year-old, whose Chelsea side face Everton at Goodison Park on Sunday bidding to move seven points clear of second-placed Tottenham before they face Arsenal later in the afternoon, said: “I always found it very strange when I first arrived and heard the music at high volume in the dressing room.

“I always thought that ­before the game you should be focused, no? And I thought silence would help to find the focus.

“The music at Chelsea is always different but, for sure, it’s not classical music.
