Antonio Conte was wrong to sell Nemanja Matic to Manchester United in the summer, according to pundit Garth Crooks.
“Can anyone explain why Antonio Conte sold Matic to one of his main rivals?” he asked when picking his BBC team of the week.
“I didn’t understand it at the time and it makes even less sense to me now.
“Against Brighton the Serbia international was imperious.
“Matic is not a star and refuses to crave the limelight in the same manner as Paul Pogba for example – although there is nothing wrong with that if you are performing.
“However Matic joining United has left Chelsea, and more importantly Conte, exposed and placed United in a much more favourable position. Exceptionally poor judgment by Conte.”
