Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is confident ahead of next Champions League clash against AS Roma despite the Blues’ last double disappointing defeat against Manchester City and then Crystal Palace.
“We have to find the strength to overcome this moment, – Conte told Chelsea’s official website – I know my squad and my players very well. I have players with great will to work and to fight”.
“We must be unhappy after a defeat, above all if the defeat is not one but two in a row. This is not a positive moment for many reasons. We are playing without important players and every game we are having a new injury, but I trust all my players and I try to give everyone the opportunity to take their chance”.
“Every season is different. – Conte added – Last season we didn’t play in the Champions League or Europa League. This season we are facing four competitions. We are having a few problems to do this because when you have three or four injuries you are in trouble”.
“This season we have to try to build something important for the future, to give possibilities to the new players to get more experience in this league, and to give opportunities to the young players to show they deserve to stay and play for Chelsea. We must have patience this season. It won’t be easy”.
