And Bayern Munich boss Ancelotti feels that his compatriot will still have to strengthen his squad significantly ahead of his second campaign in charge.
Ancelotti is quoted as saying by the Daily Mirror: “Conte will be forced to change something, as he won the Premier League using practically the same players all the time.
“In the Champions League, he’ll need to buy a lot and buy well.”
Chelsea missed out on a domestic double last season after the Blues were beaten 2-1 by Arsenal in the FA Cup final back in May.
