Antonio Conte has given his take on Mourinho’s decision to sell De Bruyne and Lukaku when he was in charge at Chelsea.
Mourinho earlier stated he would not have sold Di Maria, Chicharito and Welbeck had he been at United during their time.
And Conte has been asked what he thinks about Mourinho’s sale of the two players and he gave an answer so diplomatic.
“It’s always very difficult to take always the best decision,” he said. “Sometimes it can happen that you think one thing and then, in the future, something else happens. A different situation.
“I think, above all, in football it’s not simple to give always a correct evaluation for players.
“Sometimes a player who, in the last two years or so, didn’t play well goes on to have a fantastic season. That happens. But it’s not right to talk about mistakes.”
