Average performances, bad results, injuries, and now rumours about players disliking the way the team are training. It feels that Antonio Conte’s problems at Chelsea are getting multiplied every week/day that passes…
I don’t know about this. I have my methods. It’s the same, like last season when we won the league
the Italian told reporters in a Press conference, when asked to comment on rumours that some of the players disapprove the training methods implemented this season.
Honestly, I think we are working maybe 70 per cent less this season. Maybe for this reason we are having trouble. When you play every three days it’s impossible to work on the tactical aspect and physical aspect
the Chelsea manager said, adding
I think we are paying less attention in every detail.
The Blues won the Premier League last season playing usually once a week, as they were not taking part in any international competition. With Champions League obligations the last five weeks, things have been quite different, proving right those who had predicted that Chelsea would suffer to retain their PL title, not having the “one game per week” advantage they had last season.
