SHOWS: LONDON, ENGLAND, UK (MAY 11, 2017) (REUTERS - ACCESS ALL) 1. (SOUNDBITE) (English) CHELSEA MANAGER ANTONIO CONTE, SAYING: "I like to have a big challenge in my life, and I think in my life I only take these types of situations. When I started my (managerial) career in Arezzo, and then Siena, Bari, and then with Juventus. Then with the national team, maybe in the worst period of our national team, and then with Chelsea after their 10th place I think that this could be a big, big step for me. But I think in my career I enjoy to have this type of big challenge, because I think that I need to have this type of situation where you arrive and you have to work a lot and also to transform the situation in the right way." STORY: Antonio Conte says guiding Chelsea to the Premier League title from last season's 10th-placed finish would be one of his best achievements as a manager. Chelsea will secure the trophy with victory at West Bromwich Albion on Friday (May 12) but the Italian remains characteristically cautious until the job is complete. Only an incredible collapse could prevent Conte bagging the title in his first season and adding it to his three Serie A crowns achieved in successive seasons with Juventus. Asked on Thursday to sum up the impending crowning of his team, former Italy manager Conte was quick to point out the state Chelsea were in when he was appointed last year. Chelsea face Arsenal in the Cup final on May 27.
