'Chelsea boss Conte eager to return to Italy job' - FIGC commissioner

'Chelsea boss Conte eager to return to Italy job' - FIGC commissioner

Things have not been plain sailing this season for the Italian, and the Premier League title is looking certain to change hands come May with Manchester City looking imperious at the summit.

Chelsea had a very hard month of January and the last two defeats to Arsenal in the semi-final of the Carabao Cup and an embarrassing 3-0 loss to Bournemouth in the Premier League might have put the Italian's job under more pressure.

Antonio Conte has lost the support of his Chelsea squad and the atmosphere at the club is now as bad as when Jose Mourinho was sacked, according to reports.

Conte thinks that Chelsea's owners and the club's fans need to be patient as the side look likely to miss out on silverware this season.

Reports Conte is unhappy with the club's transfer strategy have been persistent, but the Italian accepts Chelsea can not necessarily buy the best players any more, instead requiring a focus on developing young talent. We signed a three-year contract and I think our desire is to continue and to respect the contract.

"But I'd like to have a statement of support against this speculation".

Chelsea head coach Conte is facing mounting speculation he could be axed by the Blues owner after patchy results and rumours of fallouts with the club's hierarchy.




"Then, in the future, if there is the possibility, you have to try to buy only two or three players - not eight players".

He told Bosnian outlet Klix: "It's true that negotiations were being conducted, and that's all I can say on the subject".

"You can see the other teams are working very hard, very strong to improve their squads", Conte added.

"I'm giving all of myself, me and my staff and also my players, for this club", he said. Then, I repeat, 18 months in front of us is not a short time.

"And the problem that every player and manager has, is that while it may not affect you, it can impact those around you negatively". We have a lot of young players.

"I didn't expect to see my name linked with Chelsea but that was the situation".
