I try to dress well. Not just now at Chelsea, but all my career, at my clubs and the national team in Italy, I like to wear a nice suit on the touchline.

The target for every great champion is to play for the team.

When I was a player, I wanted to win the Ballon d'Or, but I knew my characteristics; I knew that it was impossible.

Paolo Maldini never won, but he was the best defender in the world. Gianluigi Buffon never won; he was the best goalkeeper in the world for many years. But this is the story of the Ballon d'Or.

Chelsea belongs in the Champions League, and we must stay there.

If you trust in an idea of football, and you trust in the team, it's important to have a squad with good balance.

I think the past is not important. For every player, for every single player, the past stay there. If you did well in the past, OK.

I don't think a player like Messi is a selfish player.

Video analysis is big for me. Through video, you see good things and bad things and can show players how to improve.

The most important thing for me is the work, my job, and then to go to my house to be satisfied with my work.

As a player, I was very lucky to have so many good managers in my career. I remember the first two at Lecce: Eugenio Fascetti and Carlo Mazzone. They were very important for me and my growth.

I don't trust the people when they say, 'There's pressure when you're top.' I prefer the pressure of being top of the table.

In Italy, you're in your comfort zone when it comes to language, lifestyle, your habits and preparations, and moving abroad is not easy. It's not easy to carry over your own ideas about football, your own methods. You have to get everything across in a different language, and that wastes a lot of energy.

David Luiz has to work with the others if he deserves to play; otherwise, he will stay on the bench or in the stands.

Sometimes you can win, but you are not building something positive for your future.

Every coach has to put himself in his club and to try to become a really important coach for his club. The most important thing is that the club can be happy, the fans can be happy, and the players can be happy with your work. This must be our task. Then, if you are No. 4, No. 5, No. 6, this is not important.

You are never relaxed in England. You have a tough league, the Champions League, the FA Cup and Carabao Cup.

Perhaps I'll work as a director of football. I don't know.

The pitch is the most important thing for us: not the words, not on paper.

To defend - it is very difficult to win two titles in a row.

When I was in Italy, I liked to say, no, that the manager, the coach, is like a tailor. A tailor who must build a dress, the best dress for the team.

For me, it's important to concentrate to the present and leave the past.

I want to protect my club. I want to try to protect my players. I want to try to protect my fans. Also, I want to try to protect the Premier League.

When someone makes a mistake, it's right to underline this type of situation and find the best solution to avoid the same mistake in the future.

Foreseeing the future is always difficult.

Every coach, during a game, it is important to understand the situation to change.

When you try to build a team, you need a mix of talent.

When you lose, you learn a lot about yourself. That experience is important.

When the technique doesn't arrive at the best level, arrive with your heart, with head, with enthusiasm, with passion, with work.

For me, it is sad when I listen to this, that one player must be more selfish to reach the top level.

It's important for me to exalt my players in their strengths and to try and cover their weakness, no?

I don't want to go into the situation of the other teams, other clubs, other managers. Every single club decides their own strategy.

All my coaching life, I am the same, always on the touchline, the same way. I am in the game all the time. I am focused.

You have to have respect on the pitch.

You can win, but you have to show that you win with the idea of playing good football.

It is important for the manager to find the right solution for your team.

I think, when you reach the top level, it is less about the money itself; it is important only because the level of earning shows the importance of the player or the manager. I don't think people want to have the money just to spend it. It is a reflection of your importance in football.

You don't create a big and strong team easily.

I think, in every situation, it's important to find the right balance. If you have to spend money, try and spend that money in the right way to take players with the right characteristics for your idea of football.

If they deserve it, I'm ready to play with very young players. Why not?

Sometimes you can win, and you are preparing to disrupt yourself. Sometimes you don't win, but you are preparing yourself to be better.

Even more than results, it matters that the players give everything for their shirt, and if they do that whether they're relegated or not, the fans are ready to applaud.

The Premier League is an extremely difficult competition.

I like to follow the training session with my voice. To call at them and explain my reasons and my ideas of football. It's important to make them understand: when to move, to time it right, not wrong - the right movement.

In my team, I don't want selfish players. I prefer to lose a game than have selfish players. I don't want that in my club. Never.

When I first starting coaching, I used a megaphone.

Ours is the most precarious work, as you are in one place today, and tomorrow you are in another.

I think that when I start a season, I speak with my players, and I always talk about education and respect. And I demand this, but I give this.

When I became a manager, my enthusiasm became more because when you have the possibility to waste your energy and show your passion during the game; it is good.
