Former Chelsea star William Gallas has hailed the impact of manager Antonio Conte on the Blues’ superb recent run of form in the Premier League.
The Frenchman says the effects of a strong manager resonate throughout an entire squad, insisting it would be wrong to single out the defence, midfield or attack at the moment.
Chelsea’s change to a 3-4-3 formation in their last six games looks to have brought the best out of nearly every area of the squad, but Gallas has heaped praise on Conte for setting his side up this way and giving them the confidence to execute his ideas.
‘Everything is about the connection, and the information the manager gives you,’ Gallas told Chelsea’s official website.
‘Then as a player you have to do what you have to do, and if your midfield does a good job as well it will help you a lot.
‘So you can’t speak just about the defenders, you have to speak about the team as well. And at the moment, Chelsea are playing very well, they are not conceding many goals because they are very solid and the players do the job very well.’
