Chelsea manager, Antonio Conte has stated that he regrets the selling of Chelsea’s midfielder, Nemanja Matic to Manchester United.
Matic will come face to face with his former club Sunday and Conte said he does not wish his former midfielder well in the clash.
29-year-old Matic was allowed to join United in a £40million deal ahead of the 2017/18 campaign.
Conte said Matic’s move to Manchester United was ‘unfortunate’.
Asked about facing Matic, Conte responded, “About this player I can talk only really well because he played with us last season.
“I think he was one of the key players in winning the title. Now Matic, unfortunately, is playing for Manchester United. I wish for him the best. Not on Sunday, but in the future.”
Conte admitted that Matic would be a ‘big loss’ to Chelsea last summer but refused to dwell on the subject ahead of this weekend’s clash.
Asked why Matic was allowed to join top rivals United, Conte replied, “In the past we have already managed this topic.
“I don’t want to come back and speak about the past because I think it’s not important…”
