Conte: FA Cup ‘not important’ to Chelsea

first_imgChelsea Conte: FA Cup ‘not important’ to Chelsea Robin Bairner 16:32 18/3/2018 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(1) Antonio Conte, Chelsea Getty Chelsea FA Cup Leicester City v Chelsea Leicester City Antonio Conte The Italian says that he and his staff are doing “fantastic” work at Stamford Bridge and the club needs to recognise it is in a period of transition Antonio Conte has said that the FA Cup is “not important” to Chelsea this season.The Italian finds himself under pressure at Stamford Bridge after a difficult second campaign with the club, which has seen them submit their Premier League title to Manchester City and face a fight just to finish in the top four.Barcelona dumped the Blues out of Europe earlier this week, but the ex-Juventus boss explained that this does not heighten the importance of Sunday’s cup tie against Leicester.

But it’s not important,” he said. “A lot of times we compare, good season, bad season, if you win something. But you have to know what our level is now.”With Chelsea currently fifth in the league, speculation over the manager’s future continues to grow, but he believes the job he is doing is of the highest standard.“I’m very satisfied with my job and the work we’re doing. Me, the staff, my players, we’re doing a fantastic job,” he said. “Then, if you are able to win something, it’s good. But you have to understand — what is your level in this moment?“Last season every player performed 120 per cent, maybe 130%. Also, we lost a lot of players who created a basis for Chelsea for a long time.“This season has confirmed one thing: that last season we did an incredible achievement.“Now we are trying to build a basis, fundamentals for this club. For this reason, we have a lot of young players, a lack of experience when you play against teams like Barcelona.”The answer to the club’s problems, according to Conte? Investment in the summer – a topic that has caused a rift between him and the board.“If you want to improve, you have to buy great players,” he argued. “I can give my opinion to the club, then the club has to decide how much money to invest. I have to stay in my place.”Chelsea last won the FA Cup in 2012, when they beat Liverpool 2-1 in the final.last_img read more
