Chelsea manager Antonio Conte believes Cesc Fabregas has “no excuse” for being sent off with 20 minutes remaining to play in the friendly against Liverpool.

He said: “In this period sometimes the fatigue it can bring a bit of.. .to go too late in a situation.”

“As I know Fabregas is a good man and not a player to have this situation. I am sorry for him and every Liverpool player.”

“Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp said of Fabregas’ challenge: “It’s a red card, he came by us in the dressing room and said sorry. He came too late in the challenge, of course.”

“Sometimes in life if you are too late you get a red card, especially in football. That’s how it was.”

Cesc Fabregas is sure that next Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is the right man to bring back the club to stability and glory:

“That’s what we need,” he said while he was a guest to Sky Sports’ MNF.

“Someone that will always be on our back to push us and make us work hard, teaching us new things; the things he wants to do and achieve.

“All I know is that he wants to win straight away. No more transition, no more excuses. He wants to win and for that we’ll have to be prepared from day one.”

On Conte’s playing style he said:
