Chelsea star Eden Hazard played for Belgium during the international break despite not playing for Chelsea this season due to an ankle injury he sustained in June while on international duty.
Many Chelsea fans were disappointed with Roberto Martinez’s decision to play Hazard but Chelsea boss Antonio Conte insists he was in support of the Belgium manager’s decision to play Hazard.
When asked if he was disappointed Martinez opted to play Hazard, Conte said: “No.
“I spoke with Roberto and we tried the right way to improve his fitness. I was very happy for him to play against Gibraltar and 30 minutes against Greece.
“I totally agreed with him.”
