Chelsea manager Call the League Nuisance Cup
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte agrees with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho and Manchester City manager Pep Guardiola. Conte considers the League Cup an annoying tournament.
“Now I have to see it with a bit of selfishness I can say if I agree with them,” Conte said as quoted by Soccerway.
In addition to the English League and FA Cup, the League Cup is a less-prioritized tournament than Premier League clubs. The big clubs are more prioritized to compete in the Champions League and Premier League.
Nevertheless, Conte still considers League Cup matches are an important match. Chelsea will face Everton in the League Cup party on Thursday (26/10/2017).
“This kind of game is important because it gives you an opportunity to see the progress of players who do not have time to play,” said Conte ended.
Chelsea is currently ranked fourth in the English Premier League standings with 16 points. In the latest game, the Blues won 4-2 over Watford FC.
