Antonio Conte: ‘When you have this type of player I can sleep easy at night’


Chelsea Boss Antonio Conte has heaped praise on Willians attitude.

As he continues to battle Pedro for a spot, Willian has been in and out of Contes squad.

Even though the Blues has a disappointing run last season, Willian was a standout for the club earning Players’ Player of the Year and Club Player of the Year awards.

Despite the 28-year-old spending his time mostly on the bench this time around, The Blue Boss is very pleased he has the players of his quality at Stamford Bridge.

The Italian boss also spoke highly of Cesc Fabregas’ contribution to the team after he scored the opener in Chelsea’s 3-1 win over Swansea on Saturday.

“He [Fabregas] showed a great professional attitude,” Conte told Chelsea’s website.

“I’m pleased to have these opportunities to work with these types of players.

“We are talking about champions, not medium players, but top players.

“When you have in your squad these type of player that you put in the team and he does not think of himself, but the team, it’s great.

“Another example is Willian. Pedro is playing but Willian’s behavior is always the same and when you have this type of player, you must go in your house to sleep (well).”
