Roman Abramovich makes surprise visit to see Chelsea boss Antonio Conte
The Times claim the business tycoon had lunch with Antonio Conte at the club's Cobham based complex.
It's reported that Blues owner also watched an entire training session.
“It's suggested some players are also finding Conte's methods difficult to get used to”
Despite the catch-up, he resisted the urge to discuss Conte's future and didn't speak with the players.
Abramovich has sympathy with the Italian after the club struggled to land their favoured transfer targets over the summer.
N'Golo Kante was the only player on Conte's original hitlist that was subsequently snapped up.
