Antonio Conte explains why he's so annoyed with the Matic sale

13 Août, 2017, 11:50 | Author: Marie-Claire Cellier

Antonio Conte concedes that the departure of Nemanja Matic was an unexpected blow to his plans at Chelsea this season.

Matic, 29, joined United for £40m ($52m) on a three-year deal in July, becoming the club's third summer signing after Victor Lindelof and Romelu Lukaku.

"Matic knows very well what I think about him", Conte is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.

"If Nathaniel Chalobah or Ruben Loftus-Cheek were still there they could get rid of Matic and play a younger kid".

The Serbian secured a move from Stamford Bridge to Old Trafford following a lengthy chase from Jose Mourinho and has already proven his worth with an excellent display in his new side's defeat to Real Madrid in the UEFA Super Cup. We want to put Manchester United back on the map.

"There is very rarely such big transfers between champions to clubs that are challenging them and it is a unusual move".

"You respect that if that is the case". You saw that in the Uefa Super Cup game - he'll fit very well in there.

"It's just unusual that he's gone to a competitor".

Chelsea are now preparing for their Premier League opener against Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Saturday as they look to get their title defence off to a winning start.

But Wright said the Blues appeared to be in a worse position compared to last season due to the extent of upheaval in the squad that won the Premier League title.

"Tiemoue Bakayoko was very impressive a year ago, he's very physical". Is Tiemoue Bakayoko a similar type of player to Matic? "It would be silly to dismiss Chelsea after the way they played so dominantly previous year but looking at the teams, I think City and United will be up there and the teams to watch".
