Amid Tottenham links, Antonio Conte has already made feelings clear on Chelsea’s Andreas Christensen

After being linked with a move to Tottenham, Antonio Conte’s previous comments on Andreas Christensen have re-emerged.

Tottenham linked with Christensen

As was expected, when Antonio Conte took the reins at Tottenham, we moved them into a back-three formation.

And whilst Spurs have had decent results so far, it is obvious that their centre-back options need to be improved upon.

The likes of Eric, Dier, Davinson Sanchez and Joe Rodon are simply not at the level required to get Spurs back in the top-four.

So, it was not at all surprising when it was reported over the weekend that Tottenham had joined the hunt for Chelsea’s Andreas Christensen.

The Dane is out of contract in the summer and Thomas Tuchel recently confirmed that Christensen had been left out of games amid his contract situation:

Christensen did return for Chelsea in midweek vs Zenit, but was once again benched vs Leeds over the weekend despite the Blues’ struggles at the back of late.

Now, after seeing his side linked with Christensen, Conte’s previous comments on the defender have come to light.

The Italian would work with Christensen at Chelsea and has first-hand experience of his ability in a back-three.

And, judging by his previous comments on Christensen when he was still Chelsea manager, Conte would be very keen to reunite with the stopper in north London:

“Christensen is having a fantastic season and he is showing great maturity. His performance was wonderful.

“I trust Christensen. I think this player is the present and also the future for Chelsea. He can also become the captain of this team.”
