- Antonio Conte has stated clearly that he is not looking for sympathy from any coach
- The Italian tactician was responding to Arsene Wenger's comment on his squad
- Conte is frustrated with the Blues' inability to land more fresh legs ahead of the new season
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has responded to Arsene Wenger's attack about the Italian complaining about the size of his squad ahead of the start of the new Premier League season.
Conte has recently expressed frustration over his squad as the former Juventus manager is not comfortable with the shortage of arrivals at Stamford Bridge and also the number of players the Blues have sent on loan.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger however blamed Conte and his chiefs for their current situation stressing that he should stop complaining about his squad.
But responding to Wenger’s comments, Conte said at Friday’s pre-match press conference: ‘My message is that I’m not looking for sympathy from any coaches for this situation.
‘That’s my message. The situation is clear, I’m not looking for sympathy from other coaches.
‘If the club decides to loan out players for their development it is because they’re not ready to play for Chelsea,'' Conte explained.
Chelsea will begin the defense of their Premier League title defense on Saturday, August 12, 2017 at home against Burnley.
