Gerrard is unhappy with Conte for letting a number of young players leave rather than giving them a chance.
Speaking on BT Sport after Chelsea’s Community Shield loss to Arsenal, Gerrard said;
“You can’t have any sympathy with Chelsea.
They bring four players in, one of those is a goalkeeper, and they let seven or eight go.
“Nathaniel Chalobah, Ruben Loftus-Cheek, Nathan Ake – for me, all of those are good enough to be in Chelsea’s squad.
“Unless people above Conte are making decisions and selling players without his permission, that’s the only way I can see it.”
