Antonio Conte has spoken on his future, saying that it will be clear in the next fortnight, although he is currently focused on being Chelsea’s coach.
Conte’s side has been far from impressive this season, with a potential absence from next season’s UCL looming. This has resulted in speculation that he may be axed from Chelsea when the current season comes to a close.
Conte won the Premier League with Chelsea on his managerial debut but failed to make any mark in the UCL as his Chelsea side were ousted from the competition by Barcelona in the Round of 16.
“I think and I am sure that I am Chelsea’s coach and my focus is only on this,” Conte said at a press conference.
“It is very difficult to comment on any speculation also because there have been speculations around me from the start of the season, after our first game against Burnley.”
“I think you understood that this speculation is not important for me because my focus is only to work in the best possible way with my players. I am doing this from the start, until the end. There are only two weeks and then this season will finish.
“You will then know if there is a different situation, or if you see me again next season, and we start again from the first game speculation about my future.
“I am very focused on trying to finish the season in the best possible way and I try to transfer my will to my players because the fans deserve this.”
“The reality in this moment is that I have a contract, I am committed with Chelsea and in my future. The situation is to be committed with Chelsea for another year.
“My focus is only to Chelsea. The future? You never know what will happen because our job is very difficult. You have to be ready for everything.”
