The former Juventus manager said earlier this month that he was hoping to try out something new but has now completely changed the plan.
The Italian has then questioned what his wife felt about the decision to which the tactician replied his daughter’s opinion is more important than that of his wife.
The former Italy boss was in high spirits ahead of the Saturday evening clash against top-four Premier League rivals Liverpool.
The Chelsea manager drew comparisons between his management style and that of Jurgen Klopp, both tactician’s can regularly be viewed frantically making gestures to their players from the technical area throughout matches.
Both coaches are expected to be in their usual frantic mood on the technical area for the entire duration of the highly anticipated match, with the Blues looking to close the gap with league leaders Manchester City, while Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool FC know that a victory this evening will see them level on points with Chelsea.
