Conte: Dropping Luiz Was Tactical

Conte: Dropping Luiz Was Tactical

Abramovich had been a driving force behind the decision to re-sign Luiz last summer and regards the Brazilian as a world-class defender, but that did not influence Conte's decision.

Wilkins, who also represented Manchester United during his playing career, believes Luiz would be better employed as a midfielder but feels he is too much of a liability at the back.

Conte's position has been under scrutiny after a mixed start to his second season in charge but the Italian said: 'To have this type of performance and to see this spirit, I'm pleased'. "The coach has to make the best decision for the team, and tonight it was to play for Christensen and have Ethan Ampadu on the bench, good players for the present and future".

"[It was] only a tactical decision, I repeat, only a tactical decision", he told reporters after the match.

US, Turkey resume limited mutual visa services
Last month, U.S. missions suspended all non-immigrant visa services after Turkey's arrest of a United States consulate employee. We are also concerned about the cases against USA citizens who have been arrested under the state of emergency.

"It's only a tactical decision, only a tactical decision, only a tactical decision", he explained. Until, that is you realise Conte is somewhat prone to answering many questions with a quiet "err, I don't know", as he searches for the English to give a reasoned response.

That's normal. I must take the best decision for the club, not for a single player.

"Christensen came in yesterday and played very, very well indeed in a massive game".

"It's normal, this can happen to everyone of my players".

Paxton Lynch could start for Broncos in Week 10
Denver made a change at quarterback after Trevor Siemian struggled badly in a loss to the Chiefs in Week 8, but it didn't help. The Broncos are going with Brock Osweiler as their starting quarterback again this week, sources told 9NEWS.

Speaking of Conte's situation at the club, Sky Sports pundit Gary Neville has claimed that Conte's handling of David Luiz could see Conte losing his job as the Brazilian is a "big influence" in the dressing room.

He's now out of the picture, but Luiz regularly stepped in to defend his close friend and acted as a peacemaker, which the centre-back thinks Conte is now punishing him for.

"Manchester United is a really good team".
