The Conte Thread

Started by Special Juan,

Conte says we 'need more players to improve our squad' both in terms of quality and the size of it. #CFC

Conte says it is important the club know his position on how many new players we need, and not the press. #CFC

Conte says it is important to keep the positive things from a good season - as our system was - and change the negative things. #CFC

Conte says playing Morata and Batshuayi together is an option, adding he wants to play the Spaniard as a no.9 this season. #CFC - When pedro & Hazard are injured, we have no another option...

PR manager just confirmed that everyone involved knew the decision in January and that the allegations that Conte wrote a text message to Costa to.inform he is leaving are nonsense.
Well...

I'm slowly getting convinced that this is his last season with us. 

Too much friction between him and the club. 

Does not sounds good to me.

That's not quite what Steve Atkins meant. He reconfirmed that Diego and his representatives were informed in January that our Brazilian Spaniard would not be a part of the manager's plans after the end of the 2016/17 season. He did not specifically deny that Antonio had sent the infamous text message, indeed the message must be real, or no lawyer would be making so much of it. Atkins just made it clear that Diego already knew in January that the club did not want him to continue beyond the end of last season and pointed out that the claim that Diego had heard it for the first time in a text message is just nonsense.

The lawyer's description of the text message is a pretty obvious and shallow attempt to manufacture some extra leverage for his client. His strange, and all too transparent, claim that Antonio had 'released' Diego in that text is silly and will fool no one.

Antonio did answer, and did so in the same way he has done several times previously. Steve Atkins just added a specific response, on behalf of the club, to comments made by Diego's lawyer earlier this week. (Because the question asked of Antonio was about those comments.)

Here are his exact words : "So the lawyer's argument, that Antonio as a coach has forced the player out by a text message in June is just nonsense". 

To me that is denying that Conte informed Costa of the decision via sms, I'm thinking of something along the lines of "Good luck for the next chapter of your career";..

What's the issue anyway ? One thing we're sure of is that everyone involved knew the decision on January, starting from here Conte didn't inform anyone of anything.

So, as everyone was obviously suspecting, Costa and his staff trying to leverage some nonsense to ease his departure, there it is, for those who still doubted who initiated the whole issue.

God would people stop overreacting, it's absolutely pathetic. He already said the board and himself are working to find the right solution, so they know what they want and are working on targets. Not every transfer can be done in straight away. It takes time to negotiate. If anybody has actually read about the transfer process, it takes anywhere from a few days up to weeks depending on the situation. Everybody chooses to take the negative from everything Conte speaks about transfers. What is he supposed to say to the press? He's not going to speak on issues which are between himself and the club. The quicker people get that through their heads, the better. It's fine though, carry on your agenda against the board. Fuck me. 

17 players for 4 competitions.  4 august.  over-reaction? ok:cig:

Conte probably got scammed by our board to sign that new contract with fake promises. We only delivered with Morata because we absolutely needed a striker.

Conte said one is not enough, we need to sign more players. Pretty sure we're working to sign at least two players at the moment.

Can't wait to see Drinkwater raising the CL trophy in May.

From what I understand, he didn't extend his contract only got a raise in salary so either way, Conte wins
