Barcelona vs Chelsea: We Don’t Have Experience, We Will Suffer – Conte

Antonio Conte

Antonio Conte

Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte, has admitted his team does not have enough experience to replicate Juventus’ comeback against Tottenham last week, when they take on Barcelona on Wednesday in the Champions League.

The Blues were held to a 1-1 draw in the first leg at Stamford Bridge and travel to Spain knowing they have to score, like Conte’s former club Juventus did when they won 2-1 at Wembley

.
But the Italian is not optimistic of causing an upset against the LaLiga leaders.

“Don’t forget you are talking about a team with many players with great experience.

“We don’t have this experience and you have to build this experience over the years. Juventus showed great resilience, they suffered a lot and in the right mind they killed Tottenham.

“But I repeat: in the team there are many players with great experience and many players who won the Champions League in the past or played in a final of the Champions League.

Man Utd sack Jose Mourinho: Red Devils part way with manager after poor start to the season


Jose Mourinho has been sacked by Manchester United following their disappointing start to the season.

The Red Devils currently sit sixth in the Premier League table but have already lost five times in 17 matches, leaving them 19 points behind leaders Liverpool and 11 off fourth-placed Chelsea in the fight for Champions League places.

That follows a summer transfer window in which Mourinho routinely complained at a lack of signings, with the Portuguese unable to persuade the club’s hierarchy to sign a new centre-back.

Mourinho has continued to drop hints that he remains unhappy at that failure to spend big, and he now leaves after two-and-a-half years in charge at Old Trafford, with his final match in charge Sunday’s 3-1 defeat to arch-rivals Liverpool.

“Manchester United announces that manager Jose Mourinho has left the club with immediate effect,” a statement read.

“The club would like to thank Jose for his work during his time at Manchester United and to wish him success in the future.
“A new caretaker manager will be appointed until the end of the current season, while the club conducts a thorough recruitment process for a new, full-time manager.”

 Lukaku’s first touch is bad, he loses the ball a lot – Mourinho 

Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, has slated Romelu Lukaku’s first touch, following their 3-1 defeat to Liverpool on Sunday.

Mourinho, however, feels he had a good game, despite failing to register a single shot on target.

“I think he didn’t have a bad game at all.

“I think he fought his heart, he had good movement, he set up the goal.

“He was lively, he had good movement, he had good interactions.

“Sometimes his first touch is not the best and he loses lots of ball in the first touch, but today it did not happen.
