Antonio Conte

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has warned his players of public dissent over his decisions in games, according to the Evening Standard.

The Italian is said to be peeved by actions of his players when he decides to substitute them in games.

It is reported that some of Chelsea’s stars have openly expressed their frustrations on the pitch when they are being substituted in games, whether its for injury fears or tactical reasons.

David Luiz and Michy Batshuayi have been highlighted by the Standard’s report for their anger shown in games against AS Roma and Crystal Palace.

Conte will not take any more of that from same or other players going forward. The report says Conte told this to his players prior to the 4-2 comeback win over Watford.

With a long season ahead of us and four major competitions to play in, games will come in thick and fast for our thin squad, what is likely to be seen is rotation in this team. It remains to be seen if Conte’s words has been taken in good faith by his players.
