It’s well know Antonio Conte doesn’t have a huge parte in Chelsea transfer market decisions, in fact, his relationship with the Blues board fell out in the last year also because of this.
Anyway, journalists are still curious to know his opinion about some of the main speculations of the moment.
That is why the Italian coach was asked about Anthony Martial in his pre-match press conference today.
The Manchester United forward was heavily linked to Chelsea in the past hours, but with a crucial match against Liverpool coming, Conte claims he is not focused on this at the moment:
“I think this is not the right moment to speak about this. I don’t like to talk about players of other teams,” the 48-year-old said.
“It’s disrespectful for the other players, for my players, for the other clubs. Our focus is to finish this season in the best possible way.”
