It is important to be focused on ourselves. Now the other situations, it is not important and not the right way.
Michy to play?
He started to play against Burnley, Champions League and Carabao Cup. He is in contention for tomorrow.
Two many players gone?
We must be focused to work and do the best for the players. The other issues aren’t important. It is important to try our best
Luiz pushing forward
We are talking also to adapt a player that is very important like a central defenders. David is one of the best central defenders. If I can I prefer to not change a lot as you find a solution and you lose something with the defence. When I decided against Spurs to use him in that way, it could be an option if I play with three midfielders. I don’t want to change a lot, but if there is the necessity I am ready to do this. Or give an opportunity to young players like Ampadu or Scott.
Pirlo to join Chelsea?
I knew that he decided to retire and finish his career in December. I can talk about him in the best way. In this moment he doesn’t know his future and what he wants to do and finish career.
i think from two weeks I am reading wrong things. I did an interview and I am sure the translation was wrong. I said one day in the future I would like to go back. I have two years on my contract, I am happy to work with this club and my players. I like to have this great feeling with our fans. I don’t see a problem. I want to clarify my family stay here, not in Italy, my daughter goes to school here, when I want to write something I want the truth, my family stay here.
Every coach when they start the work they want to stay for a long time and build something important. Our job is very difficult and very strange.
Change from City?
No, for these players the right suit is this. I am not considering this, but you never know
Gap at the top?
Not it is not important this issue. We have to be focused on the present and do our job in the best way
Work over international
International break, the injuries can happen here or over league games. Like Morata against City. Kante with the national team. You have to hope to have always your players in the good physical condition. At the same time you have to be prepared
The initial scan says 20-25 days, but you need another scan after one week to understand the situation very well. For sure it is a big loss. We have to have these seven games without Kante and for now Drinkwater. We have two midfielders, but youngsters like Ampadu and Scott. We have to hope no more injuries for these games
Team news, bad news. As you know very well we have three injured players. Morata I hope to have him back very soon, I hope for the next game against Roma. Drinkwater is progressing well but is not ready yet. We must have patience with him, with his calf problem. Then the last Kante, we are going to do a scan next week to check his situation if he is improving. It is a hamstring problem, this is a big loss for us. You know very well the importance of Kante and we don;t have another player with the same characteristic. We are not lucky in this period. In midfield we only have Bakayoko and Fabregas available. We have seven games in one month and we have to find different solutions, to adapt defenders in midfield. Or give the opportunities to youngsters like Scott and Ampad.
Should Musonda follow Christensen?
I think Christensen can be a good example. After two years on loan, after a good experience with Borussia Monchengladbach, he is a player ready to play with Chelsea. Charly could have a good chance to play with us this season. We have three number 10, Pedro, Hazard and Willian. Usually two number 10 play, he has a chance to play. He is a talented player.
If he attention is more on the pitch than on social media.
Pathway for young players?
We are trying to do this last season. A lot of young players from the academy played lots of different games.
We have to look at the present for him. He is a talented player and is a good prospect to be a top player for Chelsea. He has to continue working in this way.
With young players it is important to speak with him and explain which is the right way. I did this and I am sure he understood. I don’t see a problem with this. Social media is not the important thing for him.
Charly Musonda’s comments
I spoke with Charly and I think he understood his mistake. I think he has to continue to work very hard and improve himself, he is working very well. His mind must be focused on the pitch and not social media. I said this.
