Watch: Chelsea manager Antonio Conte laughs off wife's mid-news conference phone call

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte had journalists laughing on Wednesday when his wife rang his mobile phone during his news conference to preview Thursday's Premier League match against Burnley.

"Always in the worst moment," the Italian joked as he declined to answer the call.

"I'm sorry, you can put me a fine. I'm sorry because I am really annoyed if it happen in the same situation to you."

Following Thursday's match against Burnley, Chelsea's next engagement is an FA Cup semi-final against Southampton on Sunday, the club's last remaining hope of winning silverware in what has been an underwhelming campaign for last season's champions.
