Chelsea midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek is happy as new manager Antonio Conte made him an important man for his squad and wants to repay him with good performances this season.

The 20-year-old, who has just penned a new deal at Stamford Bridge, claimed: “It is good for confidence that he believes in my potential, and I just want to give back to the club,”

“They have shown faith in wanting me to stay and I want to repay that – and when I play, help us win.”

Conte used the midfielder also as a striker during pre-season and decided to keep him with the first team as he is clearly a great fan of the England-U21 starlet.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte, when asked about David Luiz‘s comeback, confirmed: “We bought David Luiz because we needed a centre-back. I know he played sometimes in midfield before but in my mind now there isn’t this idea. He has to work with us as a centre-back”.

“A great defender must be able to play football and defend, but the coach must improve his players. This is the most important thing for me, not only to win, lose or draw – to improve your players, to work on their weaknesses, and make the player stronger”.

David Luiz returned to Chelsea from Paris Saint-Germain for a £30m fee on the Deadline Day after the Blues reportedly failed to land Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly with a last and improved bid.

“David has great personality, great technique, and he likes to play – Conte added – like a defender who likes to play football. I know David can improve in defensive situations. Every player until the end of their career can improve. I say that from my experience as a footballer”.

Someone claimed the Brazilian defender is too old to improve during his second experience at Stamford Bridge:David Luiz is 29, a fantastic age for him to become one of the best defenders in the world – the Italian manager said – I am seeing great commitment from him. He wanted to play for Chelsea and it’s a great opportunity for him and for us to improve”.

“I am very happy he is a here. He is a good guy, a positive guy for the changing room, and I’m pleased with it”.

AC Milan defender Alessio Romagnoli claimed he is pleased the Rossoneri have refused to discuss a potential move to Chelsea this summer despite their huge £30m bid plus add-ons.

“The fact there was an offer was pleasing – the 21-year-old confirmed – but I am even more gratified by the fact Milan said no,”

“This pushes me on to grow even more and improve myself. I am happy to have remained. President Silvio Berlusconi made a big investment for me and that’s enormously pleasing”.

Then, speaking about his current side, Romagnoli added: “Milan are certainly behind Juventus right now, but I don’t think we are missing anything in particular. We just need to work together and grow as a unit. The new Coach always tells us to control the ball, so it’s up to us in defence to start the move and I have to say I don’t mind that.”


Chelsea struggled to keep consistency throughout all the season but despite being on the brink of being sacked in more than an occasion Antonio...
