Chelsea Boss, Conte Admitted Matic’s Departure is a Loss
Nemanja Matic has left Chelsea to Manchester United days ago, but it wasn’t until recently that The Blues’ tactician, Antonio Conte admitted that the midfielder’s departure was a big loss for his team.
Speaking to the media in a recent news conference, Conte stated that Matic is a top player who was important for Chelsea, but current crazy transfer market is something that can’t be avoided by everyone including the Premier League champions.
The Italian tactician added that even though he personally admired the Serbian international’s quality, but Conte simply must accept certain decision that doesn’t always go his way.
Now, the former Juventus boss certainly hoping that their decision in banking on Timoue Bakayoko as potential replacement for Matic will pay off nicely this season, especially if they are determined to defend their league title.
However, Conte himself noted that if The Blues are keen on defending their title this upcoming season, more signings must be made since other teams have already improved their squad significantly.
The Italian is still hoping that before this summer transfer window closes, his side will be able to complete their squad so they can comfortably compete in the Premier League and also Champions League.
