Chelsea boss Antonio Conte had some altercations with the central referee Graham Scott and fourth official after seeing two of his players get red in extra time.

Conte was asked about the referee’s game at the end of the mach, as he answered: “I don’t like to speak about the referee and accept his decision. If we want to use a new system I can’t accept a big mistake.

“Willian was a big, big mistake. Not just the referee, but the person watching it as well.

“I don’t like to speak about the referee and accept his decision. If we want to use a new system I can’t accept a big mistake. Willian was a big, big mistake. Not just the referee, but the person watching it as well.”

On the referee’s decision to give Willian a yellow card for diving, which was later rescinded, Conte said: “I think it was very clear. It was a big mistake but I don’t want to know why, but at least to avoid a big mistake you have to call the referee and say ‘look, maybe it might be better if you go to watch’. Otherwise in this way we cut the power to the referee on the pitch. He has to make the final decision. Not another person.”

    Mr. Conte alway don’t know what to do. how can you be giving such respond on your player. Mr.Conte rather say that,he is afraid of saying something reasonable than silly. He is the coses of all these situation we are into today. he should respect himself. than castigating his players.

    The referee was a big mess in this game, he made too many foolish mistakes that could easily be avoided.
