Conte called in the French defender and was pleased with the display.
He said, "The real changes compared to last season were only two because Bentancur is a player who usually starts every game in starting XI. It was the same for Cuti Romero and Sessegnon. Sessegnon played the whole season in the starting XI.
"The real changes were two, Richy and Lenglet. I think they showed they are really good players who can improve us a lot to become stronger and to become also the squad more deep and give me the possibility to make rotation without a drop in quality.
"I think Lenglet showed to be a really good player with personality, with quality. When you sign a player from Barcelona for sure he arrives with a big background and for me it's easier to explain the football to him. Richy is another player, strong player, you feel him when stay on pitch and feel his personality on the pitch.. He's a warrior, a fighter and we need this type of player to improve this type of aspect."
