Antonio Conte Dismisses AC Milan Rumours, Says 'Leave It Out'

It's normal. I have to make the best decision for the club, not for a single player.

Antonio Conte has consistently claimed he is "different" to his Chelsea predecessors as questions have been raised over his future during recent weeks, but, until Sunday, it was hard to pinpoint exactly what he meant. I have these players and then I repeat I have to make the best decision for the team.

"Every manager who has taken on the players here has gone pretty quickly", he said after the game, per the Mirror.

According to media reports in Italy, former Juventus and Azzurri boss Conte has emerged as a possible replacement for Montella, who has overseen five defeats in 12 Serie A matches this season. Tonight, the best decision for the team was to play with Christensen and to have Ampadu on the bench, young players, really good players for the present and the future. "Sometimes I can do the best things for my team".

"I wouldn't say they were exactly flamboyant previous year but I don't think they're as dominant in games". "I was very happy for this", Conte said in the press conference following the win over United.


Asked by television reporters whether or not Luiz still has a future at Chelsea, head coach Conte replied: "I don't know".

Perhaps that is why, as the Mirror put it, "David Luiz was left upset as he was made to watch from the side of the pitch and act as a ball boy".

Abramovich had been a driving force behind the decision to re-sign Luiz last summer and regards the Brazilian as a world-class defender, but that did not influence Conte's decision.

Andreas Christensen started in defence and was excellent at the back as they kept a clean sheet.

"Everyone can also say how well he did at Chelsea", he told the London Evening Standard.
