Chelsea pair Gary Cahill and David Luiz admit manager Antonio Conte is a hard taskmaster.

Cahill and Luiz revealed that their ability to execute their manager’s plans is down to plenty of hours on the training pitch.

Asked what it’s like to work with Conte, Cahill said: “Hard.

“The way we work now is intense.

“We do a lot of physical training, a lot of tactical training.”

And Luiz, who was signed by Conte last summer, added: “Very hard, he really loves football.

“He’s doing a great job but didn’t finish yet and tells us we have to keep focus.”
