Matic is a 'gross loss' for us, admits Chelsea boss Conte

Nemanja Matic

Neville believes what Conte said shows he was not the person at Chelsea who allowed Matic to join a fellow competitor for the Premier League title in Manchester United.

A £40m move to Old Trafford for Matic has been on the cards since June, but the transfer appeared to be dead in the water after Man United signed Romelu Lukaku, Antonio Conte's main target, for £75m last month.

"We have to rest well because we have a very important game on Sunday against West Ham", Matic said.

Jamie Carragher has spoken about Nemanja Matic and why he thinks the player has been off the boil for the past year and a half - and claimed he understands why Chelsea chose to sell the player this summer.

But Mourinho was nevertheless impressed with his former Chelsea charge: "I think he played really well, I think in the moment they were moving the ball well of course was hard for us in the midfield".

Chelsea opted to let Matic leave the club this summer after they brought in Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.

"And sometimes you must accept different decisions". All of a sudden United are in the driving seat ahead of Chelsea to win the Premier League.

The Firm is engaged in designing, developing, manufacturing and selling microinverter systems for the solar photovoltaic industry. Its semiconductor-based microinverter system converts direct current (DC) electricity to alternating current (AC) electricity.

"The importance for me about this player, who is a really good player, a top player, very important for our team, but sometimes you must accept this insane transfer market". The transfer market is not finished.

"It won't be easy".

"We used the pre-season to work since day one, to work and to try to improve things that we already do".

Chelsea's marquee signing this summer was the club-record arrival of Morata from Real Madrid for an initial fee of £58 million.

"Alvaro is a really good player, he's still young despite having a lot of experience", Conte added.

"I think he played really well", Mourinho said of the defensive midfielder.

And Gerrard thinks Mourinho is building a solid spine similar to the way he did when he was at Stamford Bridge.
