Thibaut Courtois snubs Antonio Conte in FA Cup final admission

16 May 2018

We have to be fighting hard to win something and we have that opportunity next week [in the FA Cup final].

It is not about the manager.

"He never looks comfortable as United manager and, with a relatively bland team, he's probably got six to 12 months to prove himself because he's not really improved the way this team play".

"I believe that's the most important thing, always being in the shake-up, fighting to win trophies and battling to keep making United exactly what it is - a massive, massive club".

"I think it's been a very complete season for me, my best since I've been at the club, I reckon", added the 27-year-old.

On Sunday, Chelsea produced a poor performance during the 3-0 defeat to Newcastle United, with the setback contributing to the Blues missing out on a place in next season's Champions League. The Chelsea right wing-back who was sent off for two yellow card offences in the 2-1 loss to Arsenal last May in an interview on Tuesday says he's put the incident behind him and already looking forward to Saturday's challenge. "Every single one of us wants to stay disciplined and focused, do what the manager asks of us on the pitch and make sure that we come out on top".

"It's a final, it's a big game and I feel that normally in those games you shouldn't have to motivate players to play football because we do what we love and we always have to do it 120%".

Lukaku missed Manchester United's final three Premier League games of the season, as he returned to Belgium to receive treatment.
