They did a good job on and off he pitch, they improved the team and the squad and continue to improve the idea of football of this squad”-
“I think Manchester City is the one club that continue to dominate, to win, not only in England but to fight for the Champions League. I think Manchester City have the possibility to do this. They are a squad very strong with great quality and great players and they have a club that want to invest and improve the situation. There is a lot of things right in the right place”.
When asked if Chelsea can reach Tottenham Hotspur in 4th place with a few games left to gol, Conte added: “First of all we have to finish this season in the best possible way, to look in the future is not right.
