Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has told Arsene Wenger he is not looking for sympathy over the size of his squad.
Amid the Italian’s reported frustration with Chelsea’s performance in the transfer market, Wenger claimed he appreciates his counterpart’s situation at Stamford Bridge, but does not feel sorry for him.
The Arsenal manager suggested Conte could bring back some of the host of players who have been loaned out if he wants a bigger squad.
Conte, though, insisted he endorses Chelsea’s decision to loan out emerging talent and would not get drawn into a debate about the club’s level of success with transfers.
“I’m not looking for sympathy from coaches in this situation, that is my message,” Conte said ahead of Saturday’s Premier League opener at home to Burnley.
“The situation is clear and I stop. I’m not looking for sympathy. If the club decide to send the players on loan for their development it is because these players are not ready to play for Chelsea.
