Antonio Conte rubbishes rumors of discontent with Chelsea Board

Chelsea star Eden Hazard opened up on Jose Mourinho's sacking

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has dismissed reports that he is unhappy with his level of influence on the club's transfer policy and said he and the club always work together to find the "right solution".

Attack: We could see Conte freshen things up in attack with Pedro getting a recall after being dropped to the bench for the FA Cup quarter final clash on Monday. We play football. I know it can happen that you can be kicked.

Conte could decide to recall Pedro for Saturday's clash after resting him against United as Chelsea go in search of the win that would send them 13 points clear at the top of the table.

"I understand that in football there are these type of situations", Conte said. "I think that's important". "We have a target [to win the title] and it's important we concentrate on trying to reach that target".

Despite the volume of fouls - 258 in two and a half years - Conte believes Hazard is increasingly resilient to physical challenges. "For this reason sometimes you try to stop him with a good or bad way".


"I don't think many people expected us to get any sort of positive result at Manchester City but we were very solid and had a threat up front, so all in all we are in decent shape and good heart". I'm not anxious about this.

"He is playing great football but also has great character and personality".

"I'm not anxious about this because Eden is very strong physically and he's showed me that he is able to play in this league". He is growing a lot in this respect.

The Times also adds that Conte his areas of improvement already earmarked and that the former Italian national team boss wants a new right wing-back, centre-back, central midfielder and a striker.
