Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has admitted playing club captain Gary Cahill in the right of the back three against Roma on Tuesday was a mistake.
When asked why Cahill started on the right, Conte said: “I think that, honestly, I don’t want to answer this question. Not out of a lack of respect for you, but who must understand understands.
“He’s very good to play on the left. We won a league with Cahill in this position. I don’t understand why we have to try again to put him on the right.
“Maybe [it was a mistake]. I think Cahill can play on the right or the left, but the best position for me is on the left. But sometimes can happen a misunderstanding, you understand. It’s important then to clarify the situation. But for sure he will play on Sunday.”
