Willian has claimed that Antonio Conte barely speaks to his Chelsea players apart from when he gives instructions on the training ground or during matches.
The Italian is under pressure after an inconsistent start to his second season at Stamford Bridge and is preparing to face Jose Mourinho and Manchester United this Sunday.
Mourinho is well-known for his tendency to send text messages to his players in his spare time and several players who have played under the United manager have attested to the Portuguese’s friendly approach.
But Willian has revealed that Conte is a contrast to his opposite number at United and claims there is not much communication from the Chelsea boss outside of football.
‘Conte keeps himself apart from the squad and there’s almost no conversation with the players,’ the Brazilian said in an interview with UOL.
‘He gives the instructions in training and on the pitch but that is it.
‘[What you see] in the game is what you know [laughs].’
