Oscar claims Conte was one of the reasons of his Chelsea exit

by -
Hinting to a Chelsea return in the next months, former Blues player Oscar explained why he had to leave Stamford Bridge last January, claiming that current Italian boss Antonio Conte was among the reasons of his exit after almost five seasons in West London.

Oscar left in the last winter transfer window in a £ 52m move to Shanghai SIPG, where he’s earning £ 400,000 per week, but he’s starting to regret his choice now

“Due to the proposal I had and the situation that was happening to me at the club,” the Brazilian attacking midfielder explained.

“I began the season playing every game as a starter.

“The first eight games I played very well and then I had a League Cup game that I left and the team lost and everything changed.

“Then Antonio Conte changed the team’s way of playing in a 3-4-3 and I did not play anymore.

“I did not have a position to play because I’m a more offensive midfielder and so I decided to leave.”

But Oscar admitted he is open to the idea of one day returning to Stamford Bridge and the Premier League.

“I left the doors open. I would go back. I’m still young, I’m 26.

“Who knows in two, three years to return to the Premier League… I would be very happy. 

“And preferably for Chelsea, who opened the doors for me to return.”
