Maurizio Sarri has loosened two rules that Antonio Conte implemented at Chelsea

Maurizio Sarri has loosened two rules that Antonio Conte implemented at Chelsea

The new Chelsea manager has abandoned the practice of the squad staying together at the Chelsea Harbour hotel on nights before they have an evening game at Stamford Bridge the following day, a measure that was introduced by Conte and was unpopular with numerous players.

Willian has admitted that he would have left Chelsea if Conte had remained at the helm but now that Maurizio Sarri has taken over, it sounds like the squad will be much happier.

Conte also banned a wide selection of foods in the training ground canteen and also in hotels when the club travelled for away games. It will require a lot of sacrifice from us all, so that is why I have to continue moving forward as a player.

But Loftus-Cheek's Huddersfield cameo follows claims from Palace boss Roy Hodgson that Chelsea denied Loftus-Cheek a return to Selhurst Park earlier in the summer because they did not want to loan him out.

"No chance. No", the 30-year-old said, as quoted by the Daily Mirror.

Kante won Premier League titles in successive seasons at Leicester City and Chelsea FC as the France star thrived in a defensive midfield role.

He also urged the worldwide community to raise their voice so that the Kashmir people could get their inalienable right. Pakistan Rangers officials at the Wagah border crossing exchanged candies with Indian Border Security Force personnel.

"We are just in the beginning", he said.

"To be able to be part of that group will stay with us until the end of our lives because we know what winning the World Cup means to us".

Conte was very strict on nutrition, with relatively little choice for the players.

Sarri has also abandoned Conte's rule of staying in a hotel before every home fixture and has told his players that they can spend the evening at home before linking up at Stamford Bridge on the day of the game.

He continued: "We had a period at the start where we didn't get a win for seven games".
