Former Liverpool player Phil Thompson believes Chelsea midfielder Nemanja Matic has proved former Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho wrong with his performances for Chelsea this season.
Thompson revealed Chelsea boss Antonio Conte deserves credit for getting the best out of Matic again this season.
“He (Conte) coached them, he nurtured them and he pushed them,” Thompson said on Sky Sports.
“I think it’s all credit to him. Winning 13 games in a row in the Premier League takes some doing.
“I think a lot of the credit needs to go to him.
“He had belief in players. Matic, who Mourinho discarded last year, what a player he’s been.
“He’s been a revelation. (N’Golo) Kante’s got all the plaudits, but he’s been terrific as well.”
