Conte: Chelsea were all bad, it wasn’t just Batshuayi

first_imgAntonio Conte Conte: Don’t scapegoat Batshuayi, every Chelsea player was bad Nizaar Kinsella Click here to see more stories from this author Chelsea correspondent Last updated 2 years ago 05:30 10/16/17 FacebookTwitterRedditcopy Comments(1) Antonio Conte Getty Images Antonio Conte Chelsea Crystal Palace Roma Premier League Serie A UEFA Champions League The Blues striker was criticised as he was substituted early in the defeat against their London rivals but his manager has come out in his defence Michy Batshuayi has faced criticism over his performance against Crystal Palace as Chelsea were defeated 2-1 at Selhurst Park on Saturday afternoon. Antonio Conte brought in Batshuayi to replace the injured Alvaro Morata, who is expected to return to face Roma, but he failed to register a shot on goal against the bottom of the table side. Chelsea 14/1 to win CL Article continues below Editors’ Picks Why Barcelona god Messi will never be worshipped in the same way in Argentina Lyon treble & England heartbreak: The full story behind Lucy Bronze’s dramatic 2019 Liverpool v Man City is now the league’s biggest rivalry and the bitterness is growing Megan Rapinoe: Born & brilliant in the U.S.A. Batshuayi was hooked in the 56th minute for Pedro and visibly showed his frustration as he was brought off. Conte isn’t concerned by the reaction of his frontman, however, and he insists that it is unfair to single out the 24-year-old when everyone played badly. “Why do you have to speak about Batshuayi and for example not another player? I think that the performance of the whole team was bad,” Conte said after being asked about the Belgian at Selhurst Park. “Not only one player or two players but all of the players. “Today, our performance was bad. I trust in every one of my players. I try to give everyone the opportunity to take their chances but also because we have only [two strikers] Morata and then Batshuayi.Pedro Batshuayi“I didn’t see this [Batshuayi’s reaction to being substituted] but it is normal to be angry after a bad performance. But today, every player had a bad performance.”I know my players, I know my squad very well, between last season and this season. I think, above all, for the players that I am working with from last season, I know them very well, but I think that I have players with a great will to work.”A great will to fight. For sure, we have to find the strength to overcome this moment because everyone can see our situation.”Batshuayi has predominantly been used as a back up striker since joining the club and Saturday was his first away start in the Premier League since joining the club for £33 million in July 2016. Chelsea are already nine points behind Manchester City in the Premier League table as defeat sees them slip down into fifth place. Conte has warned that expectations shouldn’t be too high and has called for “patience” among those watching the club from the outside. “I think that we must be unhappy because after a defeat, our mood must be unhappy, for sure,” Conte added. “Above all, if the defeat is not one but two in a row. For sure, this is not a positive moment for many reasons. We are playing without important players and every game we are having a new injury. Courtois Chelsea Crystal Palace“Today, Moses’s injury is another big loss for us. This season will be very difficult for us, for this reason, we have to put 150%, because 100% won’t be enough. I think that every season is different. Last season was the past, now it is the present with this squad of different players.”For this reason, I think if you compare last season without the Europa League or Champions League… this season you are facing four competitions. We are having a bit of a problem to do this. When you have three or four injuries then you are in trouble. “I think it is very important to look at yourself but you know very well the propensity of the other teams [like Man City] but it is important for us to look at ourselves. This season will be difficult but we have to understand that this season we have to try to build something important for the future.”To give the possibility for new young players to take more experience in this league and to give the opportunities to the young players to show that they deserve to play for Chelsea. We must have patience to understand that this season won’t be easy.”Chelsea went straight back into training on the day after the Crystal Palace defeat and prepare to face Roma at Stamford Bridge in the Champions League on Wednesday.last_img read more

REKHA THE BOLD AND THE BEAUTIFUL

first_imgCelebrity biographies often prove to be the most sought after reads because of the amount of spice they carry. From their secret affairs to the even more hushed break-ups, the biographies are the most authentic source for fans to know about their favourite stars.Recently, Rekha’s biography ‘Rekha: An Untold Story’ by Yassir Usman created quite a stir as it carried some extremely shocking and jaw-dropping revelations about her private and professional life. This book unveils a lot about the most famous and starry extra-marital affair of that time between the superstar Amitabh Bachchan and Rekha, while he was still married to Jaya Bachchan. Also Read – Add new books to your shelfRekha discloses how Jaya broke down during the screening of Muqaddar Ka Sikander when the romantic scene bewteen Rekha and Amitabh appeared. She also states that it was Jaya who brought an end to their relationship when one fine day, she learnt that Amitabh won’t do any more films with her. Rekha had already received this news from the others, but she was waiting for Amitabh to personally come and inform her about this new development. But Amitabh never came. When confronted, Amitabh confirmed the news but asked her not to question him any further. Also Read – Over 2 hours screen time daily will make your kids impulsiveRekha openly voiced her opinion about how being an ‘other woman’ is so much better than being a wife because the man wants her in spite of having a wife. This just proves that the tag of ‘other woman’ that she had got while dating Amitabh never really bothered her.She disclosed the disturbing details about her forced kiss with Biswajeet when she was just fifteen years old. “The shooting of Anjana Safar was underway in Bombay’s Mehboob Studio. Raja Nawathe was the director and cinematographer of the film. In the very first schedule of the film, Kuljeet Pal (the director), Raja and Biswajeet (the lead actor) had hatched a plan, with Rekha as the unsuspecting victim. That day a romantic scene was to be filmed between Rekha and Biswajeet.  Every last detail of the strategy had been decided before the shoot. As soon as the director Raj Nawathe said ‘action’, Biswajeet took Rekha in his arms and pressed his lips on hers. Rekha was stunned. This kiss had never been mentioned to her. The camera kept rolling; neither was the director ordering ‘cut’ nor was Biswajeet letting go of her. For all of five minutes, Biswajeet kept kissing Rekha. Unit members were whistling and cheering. Her eyes were tightly shut but they were full of tears.”The book has all the details about her marriage with businessman Mukesh Agarwal, who later committed suicide. The ill-treatment by Vinod Mehra’s mother just after their marriage and how she was projected in a black light after her affair with Amitabh became public.Rekha is known to be extremely forthcoming and outspoken; she is equally open-minded as well. No girl would ever think about speaking out loud about the kind of issues she spoke about back then. In an interview, she said some extremely bold statements like “You can’t come close, really close to a man without making love”, “It is a sheer fluke that I have never got pregnant so far”, “Premarital sex is very natural”. Her roller-coaster life has been carefully captured in those few pages and that’s what makes it an intriguing read.last_img read more
