Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is considering having a bed installed at their Cobham training ground.
The 47-year-old has been working long hours in his attempt to get the Blues back in to the Premier League top four, at the expense of seeing much of his family in London.
‘When there is my wife and daughter, then I am allowed to go in together and visit and enjoy London and it is a fantastic city,’ the Italian told Sky Sports.
‘And when I stay a long time here, it is very difficult for me because I stay at Stamford Bridge for eight or nine hours, I prefer to work here [Chelsea’s training ground at Cobham].

‘But in the future I want to ask for a bed here, because there could be a situation that happens where there is the possibility I want to stay here!’
Chelsea have made a strong start to the campaign, but hit a stumbling block against Swansea City last weekend.
The Swans looked like they might pull off an unlikely victory, but a late goal from Diego Costa rescued the Londoners’ a point.
