“What he said gave me a special feeling. Like every player here, I have a good relationship with the manager”
Italian giants Juventus have already made enquiries about the former Benfica man, who they see as a perfect replacement for Paul Pogba, who is about to join Manchester United.
And Matic admitted Conte’s words were good to hear.
He said: “What he said gave me a special feeling. Like every player here, I have a good relationship with the manager. I respect what he said about me and of course I liked what I heard.
“It was important for me to know that I am a big part of his plans. I have been at the club for two and a half years and have always given my best every day. While I’m here, I will continue to give everything.
