Chelsea manager Antonio Conte enjoyed his team win vs Atletico Madrid just for few minutes.

Then, the Italian manager’s mind went immediately to the Premier League and to the match the Blues have to play vs Manchester City.

Speaking about this fixture, Conte claims it’s unfair the game has been scheduled on Saturday and not on Sunday: For sure, we will return to London around 4 a.m.,” he said. “To have only one day to prepare for this type of game is not right” – Conte told the Guardian -. “Above all because, now, it’s an international break.

“I was trained at the club, I did everything, two seasons ago I even pushed the holders a bit, but we all saw what happened,’ he said.
