Ex-Chelsea striker blasts Conte: You HYPOCRITE!

Former Chelsea striker Mario Stanic has hit out at manager Antonio Conte over complaints about the spending of Chinese clubs.

Conte says European football should be concerned after Chelsea lost Oscar and Mikel John Obi to China last week.

But Stanic scoffed to Sportske Novosti: "The big European clubs are a little worried now. And rightly so, because there is now someone with more money.

"If Conte with Juventus or Chelsea buys a player from a smaller club, everyone is happy and honored? And if Chinese clubs throw money on the table, is it suddenly wrong?

"Players who get offers from China find it difficult to resist because of the money. No one has the right to deliver criticism there, that is unfair and hypocritical.

"Each player should make his own choice."
