There have been comments and suggestions over Antonio Conte’s future as Chelsea boss. Some pundits and fans have given their thoughts on the coach’s situation at the Stamford Bridge stadium.
The latest comments on the Italian manager’s future was from former Arsenal player Ian Wright who believes that the coach has done enough to retain his job until the end of the season. According to him, Conte won’t be sacked by the Blues despite his current poor run of results.
“I believe he will still be there until the end of the season because they have to finish in the top four whatever is happening,” said Wright.
The Blues have now lost two consecutive matches, conceding seven goals in the process after yesterday’s 4-1 defeat to Watford at the Vicarage Road.
Chelsea boards are not happy with the coach’s recent comments on the club’s transfer policy and that has added to his woes.
Conte publicly showed his grievance with the club’s owner as he wasn’t given the chance to get the players he wanted before the end of the January window.
Ian Wright further advised Conte to stop being angry and help his team to return back to form so as to qualify for next season’s Champions League competition. The Blues currently occupy the fourth position with 50 points, one point behind Liverpool who are in the third position in the Premier League table.
“So it can’t tail off and whatever is happening now, they have to get it going again and the manager has to get his head right and stop looking so angry in press conferences and maybe channel that energy into the players to get them better.” he concluded.
They must start winning games to serves as a morale booster ahead of their Champions League round-of-16 fixture against Barcelona next month.
