Chelsea manager Antonio Conte was asked about his decision to rule David Luiz out of squad to face Manchester United today. “It’s very simple. – Conte said – The coach has to make the best decision for the team. 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”.
“Maybe in the future I can decide in a different way, or continue in this way. I must take the best decision for the club, not for a single player. Sometimes I can make mistakes or sometimes I can do the best thing”.
The Italian manager confirmed ‘it was only a tactical decision’. “This can happen to any one of my players. If I see they are not in good form, it’s normal. I have to put my face in every situation, and sometimes make important decisions. Today I did this, and Christensen played an amazing game. I was very happy for this.’
