Antonio Conte isn’t worried about his Chelsea future saying that he is different to the club’s former managers, Sky Sports reports.

There has been tension surrounding the Italian so far this season after some poor performances along with his relationship with the board.

Conte missed out on several transfer targets in the summer as he has been short of options in an injury-hit season. However, when speaking to Sky Sports, Conte says he has no concerns over his future at the Blues.

Sky Sports quotes Conte saying:

“I am different. I am a different coach. A different person. I am not worried. I am not worried about this situation. I continue to do my job and my work.”

Chelsea has had 10 different managers since Roman Abramovich took over the club in 2003. This puts pressure on any coach in charge of the club, especially when we’re going through a dry patch.

However, Conte won the Premier League last season and things may not be as bad as they seem.

Chelsea is one win away from Champions League qualification and sit fourth in the league table. We may be below expectations at the moment but it’s certainly not a season similar to the disastrous 2015/16 campaign.

There wouldn’t be a better way for Conte and his team to put things right with a victory over Manchester United on Sunday.
