Chelsea boss won't prioritise Premier League or FA Cup

Chelsea boss won't prioritise Premier League or FA Cup

"I think every trophy is important for us", the Italian said.

The London outfit will have to face the threat of having to pay the full £9 million bill if they sack Conte at the end of the season.

The Chelsea manager then went up to Messi for a second time to speak with the Barcelona forward before leaving the pitch.

Messi becomes only the second player to reach the milestone in Europe's premier tournament, following Real Madrid's Cristiano Ronaldo, who has 117 goals in 152 games. While the world continues to speculate who the 'next Messi' will be, the truth is, reaching his level of consistency and quality remains an impossible task. But he started to play with Barcelona and, for sure, he will finish his career in Barcelona. But the lack of a great performance in the Champions League knockout remains a big deterrent to his legacy. "In the last game we played at home we suffered against them", Conte told reporters on Friday.

But the Blues found themselves trailing before their first touch on Wednesday, with Messi scoring at close range barely two minutes into the contest to the delight of the 97,000-plus crowd in the stands at Camp Nou. "He forces himself to do that", Barcelona coach Ernesto Valverde said. Keep checking back for new Leicester v Chelsea tips through until kick-off.

"We have to try to do both".

Not just Ferdinand other pundits were also in awe of the Argentine ace who proved too good for Chelsea backline. He knows in certain moments stars have to come out. "He had the injuries, and was coming from a different team and a different type of soccer". Whereas Messi, you sometimes see him in the defensive midfielder position, picking up the ball, playing one-twos, just playing with the opposition and biding his time.

Tianjin Quanjian were linked with a move for Iniesta, although the Chinese Super League club have issued a statement strongly denying any interest. His total of four Champions League triumphs puts him on a par with the likes of Ronaldo, Gerard Pique, Andres Iniesta, Xavi, Samuel Eto'o and Clarence Seedorf.

"We are still a young team with a long way to go and we need to gain experience to be competitive all the way in the Champions League".

Conte delivered the Premier League title in his debut campaign at Stamford Bridge but their title defence has fallen flat as Manchester City have dominated the division.
