Ake in action with Chelsea this season © Francesca Ceciarini

A satisfied Nathan Ake spoke after starting in the FA Cup win against Brentford: it was the first appearance since he´s been back for the Dutch midfielder, that hailed Chelsea boss Antonio Conte in a post match interview:

“On the first day I was back he called me into his office and explained the different positions he sees me in and what he expects from me when I play there,” Ake said of Conte.

“He said that for him age doesn’t matter and I have to show him that I’m ready to be here. That’s what I do in training, I try to train hard, play well and hopefully he’ll see it.

“It was positive that he called me back from Bournemouth. That gave me confidence. You’ve seen Nathaniel [Chalobah] and Ruben [Loftus-Cheek] getting games this season so it’s good.”

A big mistake or a marketing strategy? It’s still unknown if Adidas wanted to reveal us a big market news today, but the sport brand, that is the official Chelsea equipment supplier, published a photo of the Blues shirt with Mahrez name and the number 7 printed on it.

While we try to understand why this happened, it seems that Riyad Mahrez‘s future can be far from Leicester City: after Arsenal bidding € 50m ( £ 42m) on the Algerian player now it seems the Foxes star can move to the other side of London.

We all know the personality of Roy Keane and that he does never mince words, in fact he has blasted Eden Hazard for his half-time shirt swap with Angel di Maria during Wednesday night’s defeat to Paris Saint Germain.

He told ITV: “I’m afraid to comment on this. It’s bad enough at the end of the game. Half time in a big game. What has to be going through a player’s mindset in such a big game? You’re thinking about swapping jerseys at half-time? I wouldn’t even bother swapping shirts at the end of the game…At half-time? Shocking.”
