Conte raps Chelsea stars: Time for real men to step up!

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has called on his players to prove themselves to be "real men".

Conte stands by his public criticism of his players after defeat at Crystal Palace.

He stated: “I don't think I was too harsh in my reaction, as we played badly and when you lose, usually it means the players did badly and the Coach got his choices wrong.

“We all take on our share of the responsibility, just as we all share the credit after a victory. It is a difficult moment for us, mainly because of the injuries to important players, but in difficult moments that is when you see real men."
