Antonio Conte
Chelsea’s coach, Antonio Conte believes that
to help English clubs progress further in the
Champions League, changes must be made to
Premier League fixtures.

The last time an English club got to the final
of the Champions League was in May
2012 when Chelsea defeated Bayern Munich.

And Conte has called on sides in continental
competitions to be given more help when it
comes to scheduling their league matches
around European trips.

“For sure I have to make the best decision for
these games, because we are playing every
three days and it is normal to have rotation,”
Conte told a news conference on Tuesday.

“I trust my players and am very sure about my
choice. I trust all my players and it is normal
to have rotation.

“For us the game against Qarabag is very
important as we don’t want to wait to go
through to the next round. When you wait or
you arrive in this type of moment it could be
more difficult for us.

“I would like to underline that I am talking
about all teams that are playing in the
Champions League, not only Chelsea. England
needs to try to understand this and try to
change something.”

Chelsea face Qarabag in Group C on
Wednesday before travelling to Anfield to take
on Liverpool in a key Premier League clash on
