Conte hits back at Arsene Wenger over criticisms

football news

 

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has responded to Wenger’s criticism of Eden Hazard. Wenger had initially stated that Hazard was a diver after he earned Chelsea an equalizer from a goal down on Wednesday.

Antonio Conte has now hit back at the Frenchman for claiming that Chelsea received favors from Anthony Taylor on the night.

“I think if Arsene watches the game again he will see they were very lucky with refereeing decisions,” he said.

“If I wanted to I could talk about refereeing decisions for a month. But I don’t want to do this because we should have respect for the referee’s decisions. Wenger tries to find this way like other coaches. It’s not good.

“It’s strange because I don’t like to speak about other coaches or players. This is a form of respect that you must have. Sometimes Wenger forgets that in the last few games [against Arsenal] we finished with 10 men.”

Chelsea will now turn their attention to the FA Cup where they lock horns with Norwich.
