‘Please leave this club’ – Chelsea fans react to Conte’s comments on England man

The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern have been reacting to comments made by Antonio Conte about summer signing Danny Drinkwater. The Italian claimed that Drinkwater had been unlucky with injuries this season but that he’s a good midfielder who he trusts completely. The comments come as rumours have been circling about Drinkwater’s future at Stamford Bridge.

Danny Drinkwater is quite predictably frustrated at Chelsea. Injuries have prevented him from having the debut season he would’ve wanted with the Blues and a story in The Telegraph has linked him with a move away from Chelsea in the summer. Conte’s Chelsea paid a large fee for the midfielder in summer as he swapped the King Power for Stamford Bridge, and now the club could be looking to recoup some of that money as they look to cut their losses in the summer.

The Blues’ recent transfer dealings have been poor, to say the least. Ross Barkley and Danny Drinkwater have both been plagued by injuries whilst Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata have failed to live up to the lofty expectations they set themselves at their previous clubs. Conte is set to leave Chelsea in the summer and whoever comes in to replace the Italian has a serious job on their hands as the club has deadwood to sell and areas to improve. Whether Drinkwater stays or goes is yet to be seen, but either way, the midfielder will be looking for a career revival as he hopes to get back to first-team football soon.
