​Conte: Players should be grateful playing for Chelsea

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has told any of his players unhappy with a lack of game time that they should be grateful to play for the Blues.

"My players must be happy to play for Chelsea," Conte said.

"They must be happy, if they start the game or stay on the bench and come on. I have clever players to understand this situation, to accept this situation.

"When you are in a great team you have to accept this. At the same time you must be happy to stay in a great team."
