Conte and Wenger speak ahead of the match

Wednesday, January 10 2018 by 7MTV
  • SOUNDBITE (English) Arsene Wenger: "(Mourinho/Conte feud) is not the most interesting thing in football."

    SOUNDBITE (English) Arsene Wenger: "The (January) transfer window should be banned, to keep us focused on football."

    SOUNDBITE (English) Arsene Wenger: "I expect nothing. I am focused on tomorrow's game. When offers happen, you respond, but at the moment it's quiet."

    SOUNDBITE (English) Arsene Wenger: "To be professional is to perform no matter what the environment is. (Transfer speculation) is not a big influence on your performance, or on the performance of the team. It's part of our job to deal with that."

    SOUNDBITE (English) Arsene Wenger: "If that is true (Alex Iwobi partying before FA cup game) he will be fined. It is impossible to go out 48 hours before a game. It is unacceptable. I will have to speak to him to see if it's true or not."

    SOUNDBITE (English): Antonio Conte, Chelsea head coach (on his row with Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho)

    (Reporter: I have to ask you Antonio. There has been this war of words between yourself and Jose Mourinho. You spoke again at the weekend. Do you regret that it has come to this point. Do you regret anything you have said about him?)

    "Do I have this look, a look of a person that regrets? I don't think so. But I think we both said things, and we'll see what happens in the future. I think the associations are not important. Not important (in this regard). I think he said some serious words. He used serious words. I won't forget this."

    OUNDBITE (English): Antonio Conte, Chelsea head coach (on playing with video assistant referee, VAR):

    "I think this is a good opportunity to improve our football. But at the same time it will be very important to have a bit of time to use in the right way but I'm sure that ... Yes I'm positive because when there is a big mistake it's right to try to correct this mistake."
