Antonio Conte responds to David Luiz red card


David Luiz was sent off for tackle on Arsenal’s Sead Kolasinac

Antonio Conte has described the club’s troubling recent disciplinary record as “strange” and suggested his team need “to be more lucky” with officials

Conte also refused to get drawn into whether he thought David Luiz deserved to be sent off for a late tackle on Sead Kolasinac.

‘David Luiz, you know very well that I don’t like to comment about the referee,’ said Conte. ‘I don’t do it in the past, or the present. You need to see what happened before the tackle.

‘We have great respect for officials, but it is strange to finish a third game in a row against Arsenal with 10 men.’

“We work to improve tactical and physical situations. In the end, we’ll try to pay more attention in the future. I hope, also, to be more lucky with the refereeing decisions. For us, and also for the opponents. Sometimes the opponents deserve a red card but, instead, they carry on playing with 11 men. So you also have to be more lucky in the future.”
