Chelsea sticking with Conte for now


Antonio Conte is under pressure at Stamford Bridge following Chelsea’s heavy defeat at the hands of Watford on Monday night.

Chelsea look set to stick with manager Antonio Conte for now – and have not approached any potential candidates to replace him.

Whilst his future at Stamford Bridge beyond the summer looks bleak as Roman Abramovich is against employing a short-term fix ahead of a busy few weeks with matches against both Manchester clubs and two against Barcelona.

Conte has made it clear he is unhappy with some of the arrangements at Stamford Bridge

Relations between Conte and the Chelsea board continue to be strained. As far back as last summer, he complained openly he was not being backed in the transfer window.

Conte believes his squad lacks the resources to be able to make wholesale changes to his starting XI and has given his squad three days off ahead of Monday’s home match against West Brom, Sky Sports reports.
