Ruben Loftus-Cheek: This is what I think of new manager Antonio Conte


Midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek says new Chelsea manager Antonio Conte needs time to teach his system to his players after arriving in the summer.

The Blues won their first three official games of the season with the 20-year-old in impressive form on Tuesday night as the Blues battled past Bristol Rovers by 3-2.

He praised the spirit of the Chelsea team and confirmed the players are happy to work under their new manager.

"He is a very patient manager and he realises it is a new system and a new way he wants us to play, and he respects that it is not going to come overnight," Loftus-Cheek told the club's official website.

"We are still getting used to it but we have done really well to win these three opening games, and we can only get better.

"To win these games when you're not playing too well on the ball you need to dig in and fight together and stick together. It shows the spirit of the team.

"Even though they have been tight games we are still winning and that is the sign of a good team. As a team we are really happy."
