If you compare two teams, there will be no comparison.

There is a lot of work to be done. If anyone thinks that the transfer market can solve the situation. First of all, it is very difficult to buy in January. Very, very difficult. Then they have to see if there is an option to buy the players they want. Conte thinks they should continue to work hard the way they do and continue to level up their players. Then if there are any opportunities and the club is convinced of these opportunities to improve the team.
But Conte reiterates that he does not see the resolution of their problems in the transfer window. The solution to their problems now is to work and improve all the many aspects of their squad.
