Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has given Manchester City striker Sergio Aguero his best wishes following his involvement in a car crash in Amsterdam on Thursday.

The Argentinean was reported to have been travelling in a taxi in Amsterdam after attending a concert on Thursday when the accident happened.

It is so far unclear whether Aguero will be fit for the weekend when Chelsea take on City in the Premier League but Conte is just hopeful that he is OK.

“No, first of all I am sorry for this situation,” Conte said during his pre-match press conference. “I hope his feeling is good, but when you have this accident it might not do. I hope he is well.

“It was a day off, I prefer to talk about my players and not other players or clubs. It is a lack of respect to judge or give evaluations.”

And Conte reckons it is only right to give players the responsibility to do what they please on their days off as they are “not kids”.

“Honestly, I am not worried,” added Conte. “I have players to make the best decision. When there is a room to travel to go see a game. I was a player, when you have a day off you must take your own responsibility to make the best decision for yourself and the club.

“I like to give responsibility. The players are not kids, they are men who have a family. It is important to give the right responsibility and then they have to make the best decision.”
