Antonio Conte

Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte has admitted for the first time he is worried over speculation surrounding his future at the club.

Conte has failed to build on what was a spectacular first season at Stamford Bridge, from guiding Chelsea in becoming Premier League champions to the likelihood of falling short of a Champions League spot for the next campaign.

The former-Juventus manager is quoted by Sky Sports, finally revealing of his concerns in potentially losing his job at the end of the season.

“I always say my only thought is to do my job in the best possible way, that I work very hard with my players.

“Since the start of the first game, at that time I don’t listen to the speculation around me and this is the right moment I start to be worried.”

Maurizio Sarri
Maurizio Sarri has been heavily-linked to replace Antonio Conte at Chelsea this summer.

It really has been an enduring, turbulent time for Conte and Chelsea with the spotlight among both parties over plans for this summer.

Chelsea have been heavily linked with managers such as Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri and former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique. Meanwhile, Conte has been linked with a return to Italy in the near future.

It’s still important that any tension between club and manager is put aside for the remaining two games of the season, including an FA Cup Final clash with Manchester United.
