Inter Coach Not Concerned About Antonio Conte Being Club's First Choice

Inter Coach Not Concerned About Antonio Conte Being Club's First Choice”

Chelsea fly back to England on the back of two straight pre-season defeats - a 3-2 loss to Bayern Munich and the 2-1 reverse at the hands of Inter, for whom Stevan Jovetic and Ivan Perisic scored. "Two years ago Chelsea finished 10th and that can not happen again", Conte said.

Former Roma coach Spalletti joined Inter last month and the charismatic Italian has already instilled a steely resolve in his players, who followed up last week's win over Lyon in China with a brace of impressive victories in Singapore's National Stadium. "I want to avoid, and the players want to avoid, the last season with Mourinho".

The Italian tactician fielded Alvaro Morata from the first minute but the Spaniard gave the impression that he still needs to settle in well at Chelsea.

"Morata is starting now and he has to improve his condition a lot", said Conte. "We are exhausted, very tired".

Michy Batshuayi was lively again and thought he had equalised when he found the nate late on, but the effort was ruled out for offside.

Red Devils boss Mourinho said on Tuesday he was trying to sign a defensive midfield player.

'It's hard to stay in the team.

"To play three games with the same players means you finish and are exhausted. They have created a fantastic atmosphere here". I don't think Conte was happy.

The future of Nemanja Matic remains uncertain and Conte brushed aside a question on the matter.

Antonio Conte has opted for experience over youth since taking over at Stamford Bridge and, as a result, left little room for the club's best young players to make a breakthrough. "You have to ask the club".

Inter were firmly in control until an incredible own goal gifted Chelsea a way back into the match in the 74th minute when Geoffrey Kondogbia inexplicably lofted an overhit back pass over Daniele Padelli from near the halfway line.

Despite dominating the second half, the English champions couldn't find an equaliser and if that happens when the season kicks off in August, expect to see Conte going berserk on the touchline.
