Antonio Conte cannot confirm his stay at Chelsea

Antonio Conte has not reassured Chelsea fans at his press conference today, saying that ‘anything is possible’ about rumours of him moving on.

The Italian has insisted he is happy at Stamford Bridge, although he could not confirm his stay for next season.

Massimiliano Allegri and Luis Enrique are the names to have been rumoured with replacing Conte, and the Italian had this to say about these links at his press conference today.

“Everything is possible, I have another year of contract with this club but, as you know very well in football, everything is possible.

“In one moment you stay here and in another you are in another place and another person replaces you. Football is like this. Our job is very difficult. Everything can change.”

Antonio Conte has said he is happy at Chelsea

“I’m happy and I’m enjoying my period here,” Conte added. “It wasn’t easy… because it was my first experience in another country. But, for sure, I am enjoying my experience. I’m enjoying to live in this atmosphere and to work with my players. In this aspect I am very happy.

“I have another year of my contract and in this case I think the club has to decide to send me away. In football now it’s very difficult to predict if you can stay for many years in one club, especially now in England. Before, the manager – he was in charge for many years. Now all of a sudden you decide to sack the managers earlier.

There has been a rumoured frustration in Conte over the lack of transfers

“I’m not surprised [by the rumours] because we are not talking about my work – the history of Chelsea speaks very clear.

“For this reason, it’s normal if the press is used to speaking a lot about the managers of Chelsea. It doesn’t change the situation. I don’t ask to change the situation. My only problem is to continue to work and to do a job, be professional and have good results.

“I have a lot of experience to deal with this type of situation. I am very serene. I trust in my work and the work we are doing.”
