Ahead of Chelsea’s Champions League clash with Barcelona on Tuesday, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has revealed Chelsea won’t man-mark Barcelona forward Lionel Messi because focusing on just Messi can be dangerous.

“It won’t be easy because we know very well this player. We are talking about one of the best players in the world,” Conte said of Messi.

“But we for sure will work together, work with the team, but not just to try to stop him: if we focus on just man-marking Messi, it can be very dangerous.”
