Antonio Conte

Antonio Conte’s brother has dropped a huge hint on Instagram that the Italian is set to continue as Chelsea manager.

Victory in the FA Cup final was the perfect opportunity for Conte to bow out. There appeared no way he could continue at Stamford Bridge, despite finishing the season with silverware.

His relationship with Marina Granovskaia appears beyond repair, and failure to qualify for the Champions League while working under Roman Abramovich would surely lead to dismissal.

Or so you would think…

It’s unclear whether Abramovich is prepared to show a considerable amount of faith in Conte, or rather he’s reluctant to accept the financial expense of paying him off. Either way, Conte remains.

Despite continual speculation linking Maurizio Sarri with the manger’s position, Conte may well be set to see out the final year of his contract.

Conte’s brother, Daniele Conte, posted the below image on his Instagram page. The caption suggests that we’re set for another year of Antonio: “Come on Chelsea Come on Team Conte!!! Chelsea 2018/19.”
