Chelsea boss Antonio Conte spoke ahead of upcoming Champions League clash against AS Roma. We took part in the press conference.
The Italian manager said about N’Golo Kante: “I think it’s very important, in this moment, to speak with the player and then see his sensation.
“I was a player and you know very well that, after an injury, above all a muscular problem – a bad injury – it’s very important to listen to the player and what are his sensations and then make the best decision for him, for the team. For sure, tomorrow, we’ll try and make the best decision.”
Conte confirmed Danny Drinkwater is set to play after recovering from hamstring injury. “There are two big games before the international break, against Roma tomorrow and then United on Sunday” he added.
“For us, for sure, two big games. But I like to repeat that the most important thing is to go game by game. The most important game is tomorrow, against Roma”.
When asked about a possible final result: “I don’t know. But we have to put all ourselves to try and get a good result. – he said – That will be really important, a good result. And then we must try and prepare for another tough game against United in the League.”
