Antonio Conte said he is not happy with the club for their summer transfer deals, despite spending over £180million to bring in new players.
the former Juventus manager is not happy with the signing of Danny Drinkwater as he considers him not good enough for the Stamford Bridge giants.
Conte was the happiest man on earth when he won the Premier League in his debut season but a frustrating summer dealing has affected his mood as he consistently claims he is not happy with the way Chelsea’s Board is handling the transfers.
Conte has seen his target been poached by rival clubs as the likes of Romelu Lukaku, Ross Barkley, and Fernando Llorente were all hijacked by other clubs.
The thing that irked the Blues’ boss the most, however, was the sale of Nemanja Matic, who joined Manchester United in a £40million deal in July and the purchase of Danny Drinkwater on the deadline day of the transfer.
Matic seemed to have been sold above the manager’s head, with Conte telling a press conference:
“Sometimes you must accept different decisions. But he is a great loss for us.”
Matic had been a little inconsistent in the two seasons leading up to his departure, it still came as a surprise to many when Roman Abramovich allowed him to join a title rival.
He was replaced by Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco and also Chelsea added Danny Drinkwater on the Deadline day of the transfer.
The former Leicester man’s arrival has divided opinion as while he does have title-winning experience, he’s probably not the most glamorous midfielder in the world and wasn’t deemed good enough for Manchester United when he left in 2012.
