Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has insisted that he won’t allow criticism inside the dressing room to spill over into the public domain.
After a positive start to the season, Chelsea have stumbled over the last couple of weeks, and their winless streak in the league stretched to three games with a humiliating 3-0 loss to Arsenal on Saturday.
Chelsea have earned just a point from the last three games, which includes damaging losses to Liverpool and Arsenal respectively, and Conte is experiencing his first true crisis at Stamford Bridge.
However, the Italian insisted that despite the anger and frustration inside the dressing room, he is going to make sure that the criticism of his players won’t leak out of the confines of Chelsea.
“Sure, I was angry, but also my players were angry”,Conte told the club’s official website.
“We weren’t satisfied with our performance.
“But I prefer to keep my words.
“There are the rules in the dressing room and you must respect this.”
The Chelsea boss is looking at the current run of form as an opportunity for his players to improve and come back strong with strong performances as he insisted that they have to get out of their rut together as a team.
“It’s important to take this experience like an opportunity that if we want to come back very soon or fight for something important, it’s important to improve.
“We win and we lose like a team. We must continue to think in the same way always, that’s important.”
