Following Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Southampton on Saturday, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte revealed he likes Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk.
Chelsea were linked with a move for the player in the summer but the Saints were reluctant to sell the Dutch defender.
“I do not talk about other players but I like him as a player,” Conte said after Chelsea beat Saints 1-0 at Stamford Bridge.
“He has had a bad injury and come back well.
“He is quality and I wish him all the best in the future, that’s all I want to say.”
