DID CONTE WANT LUIZ?

Jamie Carragher reckons it’s the Chelsea hierarchy and not Antonio Conte who was behind the buy of David Luiz.

In the view of Carragher, there is never a surety over a Blues’ coach remaining in the office for the next season. Whoever is in that job can be slapped a sack anytime and that’s why they actually don’t leave it on the coach to buy someone and rather people sitting up on the top themselves decide who to buy. So, it was not a case of Conte wanting Luiz and buying him, it was rather a case of the hierarchy buying him and handing him over to Conte.
