Conte: “My half-time pep-talk with Swansea”

by -

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte revealed his half-time pep talk to his players in the game against Swansea: the Blues were dominated the game but ex Juventus and Athletic Bilbao striker Fernando Llorente equalised some seconds before the end of the game first part.

The Italian boss knew his team deserved more and this is what he said to his players in the Stamford Bridge dressing room to motivate them:

“I told them we are playing very well, we are dominating the game, we are creating chances, but it’s 1-1. We don’t deserve it but it’s the reality. So go to the second half and push because we need to win.

“They did this. We started the second half and Hazard did a great combination with Costa and Fabianski made a great save, then Fabregas hit the crossbar, then we scored the goal.

“After the first half it was a bit frustrating for us to be drawing. But in this situation, when the tension starts to increase, it’s important to see the right answer of my players. Today I saw a lot of right answers from my players.”
