Please allow me to introduce myself, I'm a man of wealth and taste.  And excellent tactics.  And great motivational skills.  You there, young fellow, stop slacking right now.  Lads, it will be soon be time to stop being es-star-star-star-hit.

SOON!

According to the Daily Mail, the newly announced future Chelsea boss stopped by his future place of employ for a bit of a meet and greet with his future players and staff (well, whoever survives any culling).  The Mail's calling this a "surprise" visit, but unless all the people there had been hiding under a rock the previous 24 hours, surely they were not too shocked to see the new boss arrive for a visit.

Neither the Mail, nor other reports go into any further detail.  Apparently Conte (with Michael Emenalo in tow) had met briefly with Hiddink as well.

Conte has maintained that he's fully concentrating on his job at hand of guiding Italy to a good result at Euro 2016.  Once that's done, he will turn his full attentions to Chelsea and hold any "showdown talks" and take care of other such high priority agenda items.
