Matic is a 'gross loss' for us, admits Chelsea boss Conte

Matic is a 'gross loss' for us, admits Chelsea boss Conte

Matic is a 'gross loss' for us, admits Chelsea boss Conte

Matic featured 35 times in the English league last term, according to WhoScored.com, and he is destined to become a regular at Old Trafford.

"I do think he's got the natural talent to come in and score the 20-plus goals that Diego Costa scored a year ago".

Nemanja Matic made 112 defensive actions in the Premier League last season.

With Matic now in a United shirt, it is unlikely Fabinho would be used to screen the defence, but his knowledge at right-back would be welcomed by the self-proclaimed Special One.

Conte selected Michy Batshuayi ahead of the striker for Sunday's FA Community Shield defeat against Arsenal, but said that he is happy with his new signing's progress. Lampard does not believe the situation will make the Frenchman's adaptation to the Premier League harder, but he conceded that the challenge facing the 22-year-old is a significant one.

Chelsea have strengthened too, but not as much as they would have liked given the added demands of Champions League football - but Giggs thinks they will still be in the mix.

Danish submarine creator arrested over missing reporter
He has denied responsibility for the fate of 30-year-old Kim Wall, saying she had disembarked before his vessel went down. Madsen (46) financed his submarine project through crowdfunding and completed the submarine, the UC3 Nautilus, in 2008.


Asked if Chelsea need more signings in order to successfully defend their Premier League title, Conte replied: "Yes, for sure".

"Pogba teased us previous year".

"They are getting rid of players who are experienced and from who you know exactly what you're going to get".

"It amazes me, why would you sell Matic to Manchester United?". So I don't think he'll be a huge loss to them.

"I think he's very similar in a way to Michael Carrick".

However, Mourinho says he will move on if the club fail to make another signing and says players like Lindelof are capable of occupying other positions. "It would be silly to dismiss Chelsea after the way they played so dominantly a year ago but looking at the teams, I think City and United will be up there and the teams to watch". "They allowed [Eden] Hazard, [Cesc] Fabregas and whoever else was playing that bit of freedom and I'm hoping he'll do that for United for [Paul] Pogba, [Anthony] Martial, [Jesse] Lingard and [Henrikh] Mkhitaryan".
