Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas believes Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has a strong Italian mentality when it comes to his training methods.
Fabregas also insists the players are happy with Conte’s training methods.
When asked whether Chelsea’s players were unhappy with Conte’s training methods, Fabregas told BBC: “No, not at all.
“Last year there was no Champions League and we all know it is tough when you are involved in the Champions League.
“His methods, the fitness coach…it’s a very Italian mentality. We have to run and be fit and recover well. But this year, because of the Champions League, we do not have enough time because every three days we are playing.
“You cannot play on the Wednesday, play Saturday and then, Thursday, what? You’re going to run? It’s impossible, you need to recover, you need to be well for the weekend.”
