Conte, Cahill Regret Sale Of Matic To Manchester United

Conte, Cahill Regret Sale Of Matic To Manchester United”

Antonio Conte admitted on Wednesday that the departure of Matic was a "great loss" to Chelsea, who will also begin their Premier League title defence without £40 million signing Bakayoko due to a knee injury picked up in the final weeks of last season at Monaco.

Neville said it was "strange" for a manager to speak so favourably of a player that was sold to a direct rival.

As for sales, the clubs of the English Premier League released players in the amount of 570 million pounds.

It doesn't help Conte's mood that France global Bakayoko is now out with a knee injury following Matic's exit.

"He has somebody in there that will fill the holes when he vacates them, he has licence to go wherever he wants and he [Matic] will provide that stability for the back four".

"I admit it's a very important amount but I have the personality to play with calmness and continue my path", the 24-year-old said.

It seems unlikely that Antonio Conte's team are finished already in the market for new players however, as not only are they aiming to defend their Premier League crown, but are also hoping to compete in the Champions League come the start of the new term.

"It's a massive club, so I knew if it was promoted it would be one of the biggest in the Premier League". As for Spurs, Jake, Michael and Dan think they'll draw, while Peter expects Newcastle to run out winners in their first game back in the Premier League. "If the remaining 25 per cent don't arrive I will not moan, I will just go with everything I have to try to win every match I play".

Although Wenger understands the former Juventus chief's frustrations, the Frenchman insists that the problem could have been avoided had Chelsea not loaned out so many players during the summer months. The only clues provided on Wednesday night was the silhouette of the mystery man and some choice quotes from the piece revealing that the player would be prepared to leave the club, feels the club needs to buy more "world-class players" and, perhaps unsurprisingly, he'd like to win some trophies. "I think we just have to accept it and move on". "They've had an outflux, a lot of players have gone but majority were squad players and young players who probably won't affect the first XI that much. I know that double the people are watching me now".

"I think in the moments where they were moving more the ball, of course it was hard for us in the midfield".

"I like this. To have many teams ready to fight for the title increases the level of this league". You have to have faith in the manager.
