Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has paid his respects to Chelsea legend Ray Wilkins, after our former captain tragically passed away this week at the age of 61.

“I think on Sunday, we must be ready to make a great memory to Ray,” said Conte.

“This will be very important, and then after is the game to play. These are two different situations and it is not right to mix them.

“We must have great respect for this tragedy and then think to play football, to give our best during the game.

“It was tragic news for us. We are talking about a really good person and I was lucky enough to know him and speak with him many times.

“He was a legend for this club and an ambassador for football as a whole. We are sad because it’s very difficult to accept this news. We want to pass onto the family our biggest condolences.

“I think this is a very big loss.”
