Conte laughs off Costa comments, says striker is 'the past'

Conte laughs off Costa comments, says striker is 'the past'

"They have very good teams, very good players and I don't see any reason for them not to be fighting for the title".

The Italian giants moved to Stadio Olimpico and built the Juventus Stadium, which Conte coached them in.

"If you'd said to me that one team won't buy anyone, Tottenham would have been the team I would have suggested because they've been building over the last few years", he said.

"I hope to stay at this club for many years".

"Last season we did a fantastic season because there wasn't this foundation or basis. The new arrivals are also showing that they've got an Inter heart so I'm happy with that".

"I want to play again".

"Stamford Bridge is like my house".

"The truth is, I am happy with what I've got, four or five players have left and as many came in". Coming off the bench at 3-0 down is a high-pressure situation for any player, let alone a new marquee signing, and he lived up to his billing with a superbly composed and controlled finish for his first Premier League goal.

Costa leaving Chelsea is only a matter of time, and it is clear that there is no way back for him at Stamford Bridge following the deterioration of his relationship with manager Antonio Conte. It means you have the possibility to work with the same players, to improve these players and years by years'.

They clinched it with a stunner from Nemanja Matic, who has been sold to Manchester United.

"Harry Kane wasn't this player three years ago". It really is because I want English players at every level of our game in large clubs.

"My only intention was to underline the great job Mauricio Pochettino is doing".

"Usually when you don't play regularly you lose your performance and sometimes your quality in your physical condition".

Chelsea have already brought in Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid. Maybe. To arrive and try to fight for Champions League, to try to fight to be the best in the world, you need time. We want Morata to play regularly for Chelsea. He will be there, he is making a lot of money at Chelsea so I'm not sure Atletico Madrid can pay him. "The most important thing is to have the confidence of the coach, the club and the team-mates".
