Conte regrets Matic sale to Manchester United

Conte regrets Matic sale to Manchester United

"He looked expensive this time a year ago, but maybe that £89m United paid for him is not quite so lavish now, if he can convert his potential into match winning performances this season".

In April, sources told ESPN FC that Mourinho was targeting Willian as part of his summer rebuilding plans.

He said: "There were a few conversations with my agent. I worked with Mourinho and I became his friend as well", he said. I have seen him work on the field and in the gym.

"Petr had done such a lot for the club, Thibaut Courtois had come in and it would have been harsh to stop him moving to Arsenal when he was so settled in London, but this is different".

At present, Neymar and Edinson Cavani are their star forwards, and throw Mbappe in the mix, they have goals written all over them. "He's a versatile player with a lot of physical and technical qualities, plus he's very fast", said the 38-year-old.


And he believes he can extend the sequence with Manchester United, especially as he has confirmed he has opened talks with Ibrahimovic to re-sign for the club when last season's 28-goal top scorer has recovered from ruptured knee ligaments.

Current Chelsea coach Conte was publicly and privately supportive of him during that time, and Willian had positive words for the Italian's approach.

"The two wing-backs are pushed very high and we attack with numbers, so for us at the back in terms of balance you have to have some sort of protection and they gave us that last season". Every coach has his way of working.

Pedro and Eden Hazard were preferred behind Diego Costa by Conte in his Chelsea attack during the Italian manager's first campaign at Stamford Bridge.

The first live show is scheduled for early next year. "But it'll be a way for you to kind of see the action firsthand". Chris Hughes and James Cooke-Priest, the minds behind the Top Gear live tour, are the organizers for the live show.


Mourinho won't be introducing a free-flowing, carefree Man Utd into a frantic Premier League any time soon but there are signs that Mourinho, the anti-football, win-at-all-costs coach, might have a grander plan than only delivering the trophies his role demands.

'Conte is a fantastic coach too, because he won everything at Juventus and has already won the Premier League in his first year with Chelsea.
