Antonio Conte issues sly response to Wenger’s “one team in London” dig
Antonio Conte has responded to Arsene Wenger’s “one team in London” jibe by insisting he prefers to respect every team in the capital.
Arsenal boss Wenger’s cheeky chirp came after the Gunners’ star striker Alexis Sanchez was linked with a move across the city to Chelsea.
But Conte was not for biting back in his pre-match press conference ahead of the weekend visit of Crystal Palace to Stamford Bridge.
He instead went for something of a subtle dig back at the Frenchman.
“I didn’t know this, but I think in London there are many teams,” Conte said, when asked if there was only team in London.
“Tomorrow, for example, it’s a derby against Crystal Palace.
“I like to listen to the other coaches but, for me, I prefer always to have great respect for all the players from all the clubs.”
