When asked about whether he was offended by Conte's comments, Kulusevski told Sky Sports, "No, because I know what I bring to the team every day."
He added, "Sometimes I know I don't play well enough and I can take responsibility for that."
"But what (Conte) said is for him (to say), that's his word.
"But I respect him, he helped me a lot during my career so he's still a very important man in the club and in my work."
Kulusevski also highlighted the positive impact Conte has had on his career, stating that "he helped me a lot during my career so he's still a very important man in the club and in my work."
Regarding Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg's request for elaboration on Conte's criticism, Kulusevski commented, "We have to respect his words."
It is clear that the team is disappointed with their performance this season, having been eliminated from both domestic cup competitions and the Champions League.
Kulusevski acknowledged that "sometimes we have to be sad and angry, and that is how he [Conte] took it."
However, he emphasized the importance of respecting the manager's words and continuing to work hard to improve the team's performance.
