He told Fox sports Italia: ‘I don’t have to send any message to anyone,
‘I am the Chelsea manager and do everything for Chelsea. My players exist, that is all. What happens off the pitch just makes us smile.
‘We played with intensity, with the desire to play football, only allowed them one opportunity due to our defensive distraction.’
