Chelsea vs Manchester City: Conte blasts Mourinho for selling De Bruyne
Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, has taken a swipe at Jose Mourinho, for selling Kevin De Bruyne when he was in charge of the Premier League champions.
Kevin De Bruyne left Stamford Bridge for £18million in 2014 for Wolfsburg and now plays for Manchester City.
The Belgium forward scored the winning goal, as City defeated Conte’s men 1-0 on Saturday.
Speaking about De Bruyne after the game, Conte said: “I don’t know what happened in the past but we are talking about a top player, a complete player. Technical, fast.”
On why they lost the game, the Italian added: “There is disappointment for the result but I think at the same time, I am pleased. I am pleased for the commitment
“We gave everything, you can win and we can lose but my players gave everything.
“City took their chance to score, in this type of game it is very important to score first. A great compliment to Manchester City
“I think to repeat is not good because you can take it as an excuse… but you must consider the legs of your players”
