Chelsea star: Antonio Conte has already told me what he wants from me this season


Chelsea defender Ola Aina says new manager Antonio Conte wants him to be aggressive this season.

The 19-year-old featured for the Blues during their first pre-season friendly match of the season ended in a 2-0 defeat.

He says he is pleased with his performance and that it was a good experience ahead of the new campaign.

"I was very pleased with my performance," Aina told Chelsea's official website.

"I just wanted to have an impact and try and do what the manager asked of me. I thoroughly enjoyed it even though the result didn't go the team's way. It was a good experience in a packed stadium.

"At half-time the manager just said to me and the team that we should press higher, and that everything we do should be press, press, press. It did seem to work as I thought we were edging to get a goal in the second half. It was unfortunate it didn't go our way.

"I heard him a lot [during the match!].

"It was really good. I would much rather have a manager telling me 'Ola here, Ola there', than not hearing anything at all and being left in the dark. It was really good for me and playing on the left is normal for me as well."
