Conte wants more Chelsea signings to cope with Champions League

12 August, 2017, 03:41 | Author: Joan Malone

Pedro's absence and Chelsea's general shortage of options could force Conte to start Morata alongside Michy Batshuayi against Burnley, though he admitted the Spain global is still some way off being fully adapted to his tactical demands.

Chelsea will begin the defence of their Premier League title when they take on Burnley at Stamford Bridge on Saturday afternoon.

"At Real Madrid a year ago he was slightly in and out [of the team], he wasn't their main striker".

"I think I have for sure a good relationship with the club, with my owner", he said. A player who racked up 35 league appearances in Chelsea's title charge now stands as a proof that there is something rotten at Stamford Bridge. The importance for me about this player, as I repeat he's a really good player, he's a really strong player, very important for our team.

The Italian led the Blues from 10th the previous campaign to the Premier League trophy last season. But sometimes I think you must accept this insane summer transfer market.

"He's starting to understand what I want (from) him during the game", Conte said.

"Behind the scenes he'll be saying the same message, but in a different way: 'This is going to be difficult and this is how we overcome that, by working hard and by doing the extra bits even more than we did a year ago'".

Earth's Doomsday Predicted On This Month's Solar Eclipse by Mysterious Planet "Nibiru"
One of the most actual and scary conspiracy theories is the one that claims that we're going to be hit by a planet this September. The flow of energy will disrupt the "core flows" of the Earth and trigger catastrophic changes in Earth's climate.


On the first episode of the Box to Box Soccer Podcast Staff Writers Nicholas Huba and James Clark discuss those issues and more as the Premier League kicks off its 25th season on Friday.

With the Manchester clubs desperate for silverware and Arsene Wenger's job likely depending on a top four finish, Chelsea's 2017-18 could be the most hard season of Conte's career.

Chelsea fans must be wondering what all the fuss was about.

"Whether Conte knows something different to us, I don't know", he said.

"I think he's very similar in a way to Michael Carrick".

However, the Sky Sports pundit has labelled the sale "strange", especially given the role Matic played in helping the Blues win the Premier League last season. His Juventus departure in 2014 came after a Serie A title and a summer Conte felt Bianconeri haven't done enough in the market to win the Champions League.
