Antonio Conte is confident that Chelsea star Oscar could improve at Stamford Bridge despite he struggled in the last disappointing season with the Blues.
The Italian manager said: “Oscar is a good player with good technique and can do both phases, offensive and defensive. I asked him to stay always focused and to stay in the game”.
“He is an important player for Chelsea, a good passer, good technique, and he scores goals. There was speculation but I am very glad for him that he stayed because he is in my plans.”
The Brazil international featured in all the Premier League games so far and is expected to get more playing time this season under new manager Conte.
