Conte doesnt care about replacing star Chelsea man Hazard, announces Arsenal legend Wright
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte doesn’t care about all the criticism he has been receiving for replacing star player Eden Hazard, claims Ian Wright.
Hazard has been in terrific form for Chelsea this season, despite the clubs poor form, and many have been surprised by some of the decisions Conte has been making this Calender year.
Chelsea have won just two Premier League games, which has seen them fall five points behind Tottenham in the chase for a top four spot and an all important place in next seasons Champions League.
Hazard has been dropped, played out of position and taken off in important games for Chelsea but Arsenal legend Wright believes Conte does not care about the criticism.
He was quoted on the Daily Star website: “Conte is not bothered.
“He is not bothered about what people say substituting Hazard. He has done it before. He isn’t afraid to do it.”
Hazard has already spoken about his dislike playing as a false number nine, and claimed in Chelsea’s recent defeat to Manchester City he touched the ball just three times.
But with the club playing catch up in the chase for a top four spot and in need of beating Barcelona next week in the Champions league, the Blues boss needs to get his act together quick.
