Chelsea manager Conte backs De Boer after Crystal Palace sacking

by -

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has admitted he felt ‘very sorry’ after hearing that Crystal Palace has sacked Franck De Boer after just 77 days in charge at Selhurst Park and 4 Premier League games played.

“I am sorry for him, when you start to work you try to ask time and to finish the game after only 4 games is a pity. – Conte said speaking at a press conference – It’s so difficult to speak about situations of other teams but I am sorry for the man”.

The Italian manager, who had been heavily linked with the Dutchman’s former club in the Serie A (Inter Milan), added: “If you win you are top, but if you lose you are considered the worst manager, I think we need to have the right balance in the decisions. Every club must judge the work of the coach and sometimes there’s a bit of emotion when you take decisions very strong. Decsions in football should be made not only for the final result”.

And Roy Hodgson is expected to be the man who will replace De Boer at Crystal Palace, who will face Chelsea on October 14th.
