“When the squad is not big you have to always play with the same players,” Conte told reporters.“I made a lot of rotations this season. We reached the semi-final and if you see before who played in this competition, we played with young players.I have to do the same in the FA Cup, but then you risk going out. Against Norwich we risked this.“But it is not right to take only one game to make a decision to understand. There is a programme and a plan.“It’s wrong we have to make decisions only on one game. The situation has always been the same since the summer. I continue to work and I’m very happy with my players.”With Alvaro Morata out injured with a back problem, Conte started the match against the Gunners with Hazard as a false nine before Michy Batshuayi came on for Pedro, but the Belgian forward is increasingly looking out of his depth at Stamford Bridge and possibly set for a transfer away.The Blues have been linked with bargain-bin strikers such as Andy Carroll, Peter Crouch, and Ashley Barnes, while Roma’s Edin Dzeko is the latest reported target.0Shares0000(Visited 1 times, 1 visits today) 0Shares0000The Blues have been linked with bargain-bin strikers such as Andy Carroll, Peter Crouch, and Ashley Barnes, while Roma’s Edin Dzeko is the latest reported target.LONDON, United Kingdom, Jan 25 – Chelsea manager Antonio Conte says he is happy to forego any January signings despite Wednesday’s League Cup exit at the hands of Arsenal.The Blues took the lead at the Emirates Stadium through Eden Hazard, but Antonio Rudiger’s own goal and a winner from Granit Xhaka saw the Gunners progress to the final, in which they will face Manchester City.
Daniel and MajellaDaniel O’Donnell says he is looking forward spending his first anniversary with wife Majella – despite 13 years of marriage!The Strictly Come Dancing star celebrates his wedded bliss tomorrow but revealed this is the first time that they have time to spend it together.“At the moment Majella and I are back in Tenerife. On Wednesday the 4th we will celebrate our 13th wedding anniversary. It is the first time since we got married that we have actually been off and not travelling,” he said. The 53 year old star, who had taken a year out of showbusiness, is relaxing after a whirlwind two months appearing on the BBC celebrity dancing show.“I know I was meant to be on a break but to be honest, when the request to take part in ‘Strictly Come Dancing’ came my way, it was too good to turn down. I never thought that I would be as nervous as I was when I had to dance in the live shows every Saturday night. I can’t really explain why, especially as I’ve been performing on stage for over 30 years now.“I suppose the fact of the matter was I was just out of my comfort zone. Even though I love social dancing, having to learn and perform a choreographed piece is very different. That being said the experience was amazing. Getting to meet all of the other celebrities, the dancers and indeed everybody behind the scenes was just brilliant. To all of you who voted for Kristina and I, thank you. To those of you who watched all over the world, thank you for your support.”Daniel also said he was honoured to be asked to appear on the recent Late Late Show Country Music Special and hopes Ryan Tubridy hosts another such show. “The night was dedicated to country music. It certainly was a wonderful evening where a lot of the performers from the past to the present day gathered to celebrate the wonderful music we enjoy in Ireland.“Those gathered were only a fraction of all the entertainers who have contributed to country music down through the years. I think it’s important to remember that every singer has made their own contribution to what county music is in Ireland today. I hope the show will be repeated sometime in the future and that some of the singers who were not able to be part of that show will be there next time.”Daniel now plans to relax in Tenerife were they will be joined by Majella’s daughter Siobhan, her husband Gavin and their new-born baby Olivia.DANIEL IS LOOKING FORWARD TO FIRST ANNIVERSARY – AFTER 13 YEARS OF MARRIAGE! was last modified: November 3rd, 2015 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window) Tags:daniel o’donnelldonegalmarriage
