Antonio Conte has expressed his concerns over the limits of Chelsea’s squad to club officials, according to reports.
Chelsea failed to land a number of Conte’s primary targets in the summer transfer window, including Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly, Roma’s Radja Nainggolan and Everton’s Romelu Lukaku.
And according to The Times, the former Italy boss has “told his employers not to expect miracles this season after inheriting a group that finished tenth in the Premier League last season”.
Conte, who was among our losers in the Premier League this week, saw Chelsea outplayed in a 2-1 defeat to Liverpool on Friday.
The report adds that the 47-year-old subjected his players to an angry dressing-down after the match, accusing his team of being “overcome by the fear” of Liverpool’s attacking prowess.
