Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has been speaking about the sale of Nemanja Matic, and has explained just why he was so angry at Chelsea for the sale - and it's not just because it has allowed Manchester United to bolster their side.
The Serbia global joined former Chelsea manager, Jose Mourinho at Manchester United for £40 million.
But the Italian, with Matic keen on working with Mourinho once again, was eventually forced into letting the Serbian complete a transfer to United last week.
"I am only 19-years-old and still have a lot to learn and therefore getting the opportunity to play more games on a regular basis will help my development".
"But he's still a very good player to sit in front of the back four, do the simple things, pass the ball - he's good at what he does".

"But he (Conte) spoke about him in such a way about his incredible importance to the job they did previous year, Matic and N'Golo Kante in front of that back three".
"Matic was a big player for Chelsea last season and even though they have sign players to replace him, he is going to be missed and possibly just as significantly, he strengthens Manchester United, there is no doubt about that".
And Lampard has expressed his surprise at seeing Chelsea such an important player to a rival.
"Is Bakayoko a similar type of player to Matic?"
Manchester City, along with United, are the two early favourites for the Premier League title given the money they have spent on strengthening their squads so far this summer.
"Bakayoko has not and I saw him in the Champions League past year".При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
