I think it was frustrating for him because obviously me and Keano had a really good partnership and he was just waiting in the wings and he's a very good player.

He added: "I left because I want to succeed in football, I want to do great things, and I'm in the best place to do it".

Conte said he believed Chelsea, who have also signed midfielder Tiemoue Bakayako from Monaco, are a stronger side than last season.

The Premier League is tagged as Europe's most exciting league with its unpredictable title race, frenetic rate and its tendency for late goals. "I know now twice as many people will be watching me".

"It would be silly to dismiss Chelsea after the way they played so dominantly past year but looking at the teams, I think City and United will be up there and the teams to watch".

"I know Chelsea have invested a lot to have me here but I have enough personality to remain calm".

'Actually, at first I did not realise I was so interested in signing, but when I found out about their interest I did not hesitate.

"I think both the Manchester sides are the teams to beat this year".
