Antonio Conte laid into Kenedy after he was ‘caught yawning’ during the manager’s heated team talk after defeat to Roma.
According to Matt Law of the Daily Telegraph, Conte ‘gave his Chelsea players the full hairdryer treatment’ after losing 3-0 at Roma.
The Blues were dismantled on Conte’s first return to Italy since leaving his post as national team manager.
We placed the blame squarely at the manager’s feet, but it seems that Conte himself disagrees as he blasted his players for their performance.
Law says that the manager ‘made examples of some of the worst offenders’ in midweek, and that ‘barely anybody escaped the dressing down’.
Kenedy, whose future at the club was already in doubt after he was criticised for making a racist social media post on the club’s pre-season tour to the Far East, was ‘caught yawning’ during the meeting at the club’s headquarters.
