Chelsea legend urges club to keep Conte

However, the progress Andreas Christensen has made since becoming a Chelsea regular can give our youngsters a goal that they can play for the club's first team one day.

He also praised the atmosphere between players "Although I know majority either being team mates or rivals, they have all welcomed me with open arms".
