A Chelsea spokesman denied that any official comment was made by Conte and insisted that the incident had merely been an embarrassing mistake which never went any further.
Mr Conte had said it was “not about me as a player” and that it could not have been about him, as it would have been “a mas우리카지노sive scandal”.
Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanovic has defended Conte after admitting it was wrong to give예스카지노 him a hand.
The Russian told Sky Sports: “It is the coach’s responsibility and the fans’ fault.
“What I have done has always been the coach’s responsibility, and I made it even worse by saying it. You don’t want to sa우리카지노y anything about the coach.
“We are not worried about it. We don’t have any problems with Chelsea – they have always been nice to me. I told Conte when I played with him – even when he was at Dortmund he always called me Chelsea.”
And although he denied the incident had prompted him to criticise Conte, the 24-year-old added: “I was not aware of the situation. “It is not the first time when we play or when we get in contact with each other and things like that.
