Chelsea boss Antonio Conte admits no relax in this crucial part of the season: with 8 points gap on the second sitting in the Premier League table ( Manchester City) and next FA Cup quarter finals against Manchester United, that will visit Stamford Bridge in the middle of Europa League last 16 ties, the Blues seem in a good position to end their season with some silverware glory, but the Italian doesn’t admit complacency:
“If someone thinks the Swansea game is easy, they make a great mistake,” Conte suggested after the game at Wolves.
Questioned about the future of some important players, like John Terry, the ex Juventus manager said:
“I like to reply this question for John. But also for all the players, for us it is very important to be focused on the present.
“Because I repeat we stay now in a good position, we stay in the top of the table, in the quarter-final of the FA Cup, the most important thing is now, the present, to work and build a good future.
“Then yeah for sure we will see the situation of every single player and we try to make the best decision for every single player… I want to be very clear, no, because I think every player deserve… if every player deserve to play, I’m pleased to give the opportunity but not because there is a sentiment, or because I think the right way to give every single player what they deserve.
“If, I think John Terry deserve to play this game and he played, played very well, very happy for him. For me, he’s a very important player, my captain and he’s important in and off the pitch.
“I repeat, he’s helping me a lot, and I’m very pleased to have him in my squad and also to know this type of person.”
