Conte Criticises Tuchel Over Lukaku

Antonio Conte has criticised Chelsea manager, Thomas Tuchel, saying he is not improving striker Romelu Lukaku.

Conte who once managed Chelsea said this ahead of the 1-0 loss the club suffered against Juventus in the Champions League on Wednesday.

This is as he bragged about how he managed the strike when both men worked together at Inter Milan.

“A coach is good if he can improve players. I think we did great work with Romelu over two years.

“He is a very specific striker. Bringing Lukaku into the box is dangerous. However, when he starts from midfield, he is incredibly quick. It’s very difficult to find a player who is both a target man, but can also run from midfield.

“These are also characteristics I can see in Erling Haaland. I had been tracking Lukaku for a very long time and wanted him when I was at Chelsea, even when he was at West Brom,” Conte told Sky Italia.
