Chelsea head coach Antonio Conte reassures club that he won’t leave

Chelsea head coach has said he won’t leave the club at the end of the season unless he’s sacked.

Conte has hit back at claims that he’ll leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season by stating that the club would have to sack him if he were to leave the Blues.

Speculation about the Italian’s future at the club began the moment after he signed a new contract last year with a higher salary but did not extend his stay.

Conte stated however that ‘everything is possible’ when discussing his future at the club.

The Italian coach said: “But I have another year of contract and in this case I think the club has to decide to send me away. We are not talking about my work. The history of Chelsea is very clear. It is normal for the manager of the club to have this situation. If you won last season the League and reached the final of the FA Cup, this is the history of this club for the manager.”

When asked whether he’d leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season Conte denied it by stating his intent to manage the club for the long term future.

“No. I am fully committed to Chelsea, to work with my players to try also to improve the club in the football aspect. I am fully committed in this and I am happy in what I am doing now and what I did in the past. But I am more happy in what I am doing now.”

However, Conte has repeatedly stated his dissatisfaction with the clubs transfer policy and has been let down by the club not signing the players he wanted.
