Antonio Conte says convincing Chelsea on signings is a 'disaster'

Antonio Conte says convincing Chelsea on signings is a 'disaster'

Conte's relationship with Blues owner Roman Abramovich has come under scrutiny in recent weeks, amid reports the Russian oligarch was unhappy with the manager's outspoken comments regarding the club's transfer strategy.

The under-fire Italian, whose team are fifth in the table, has repeatedly criticised the Premier League club for their transfer policy, with Chelsea failing to compete for the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Virgil van Dijk - both reported targets - in the January transfer window.

He said on Chelsea's official website: "Honestly, I don't think talk about my future can affect the players".

"This question is about the players?"

Having won the Premier League title in his debut season at Chelsea past year, the Italian boss set the club standards at a very high level.

Chelsea's poor performance in the league has intensified speculation that Conte will leave at the end of the season. It is thought that the team would take the opportunity to have a proper break having played two games every week since mid-November.

Chelsea's underwhelming form since the turn of the year is threatening to turn into a crisis after two defeats in a row by three-goal margins against lesser opposition.

"At the same time, you can trust in a coach and his work and continue with him even if you don't win, and try and build something important".

"A lot of time in football the manager and the coach depends on the result".

"There was no sell-on, he got him to win the league, then he planned to retire". Not easy. Especially in England. In my vision, you can win but still the club might not be happy to stay with you - and for this reason, it's right to send the coach away.

Stop blaming City, Arsene! The most important thing is that it only happens once.

Pardew has won just once in his 12 league games in charge since replacing Tony Pulis in November with Albion victorious just three times in the top flight this term.

Last season, Antonio Conte famously switched tactics in the second half of the second game of back-to-back highly lackluster defeats to Liverpool and Arsenal, switching away from the 4-2-4 and 4-3-3 of the pre-season and early season and instituting his now famous 3-4-3. But to try and forecast is very hard. If you ask me whether he needs a day, a month or the rest of the season, I don't know.
