The Blues boss went for a jog after taking a training session with the first team which made him a little bit late to meet the press

Antonio Conte was delayed for his press conference ahead of Chelsea's Premier League clash against Burnley as he went for a jog around Cobham Training Centre after taking a first team training session. 

Conte says Man Utd are still in title race

The Blues coach is famously energetic in training and during matches, but he and some members of his coaching staff like to stay in shape by going for runs around the training ground at Chelsea's state of the art facility. 

And such an exercise kept the Italian from the media for almost 20 minutes on Friday as they waited to quiz him in the build up to Sunday's visit to Turf Moor.

He was an energetic midfielder as a footballer for Juventus and Italy and he has impressed his first team squad with his understanding of the demands of modern football, as well as showing his ability as a manager. 

Conte often gets involved with his players during training and even suffered a calf strain at the end of December when conducting a training session, but has fully recovered since.

He jokingly blamed two of his fellow coaches following the injury back in January, stating: "I have a big problem in my calf. The fault is Carlo Cudicini and Steve Holland because I wanted to run with them and I paid for it because they ran very strong."
