ANTONIO CONTE STAYING AT CHELSEA

166

Chelsea Football Club coach has stressed that he is not looking elsewhere right now and wants to continue making history at the club. The Italian international has been a revelation in the English Premier League after leading Chelsea to just two losses in their 24 games this season. This has taken Chelsea to the top of the Premier league and 7 points above their closest rivals with a game in hand. There were rumors that were being created of the Premier League leader’s coach being considered for the Barcelona manager position that will be left vacant at the end of the season after Luis Enrique announced he will be leaving.

Chelsea are set to keep hold of their coach as they look to make a comeback in the Champions League next season. They missed out last season when they finished 10th in the league leading to the sacking of their then manager and current Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho. They lead the Premier League and will be hoping to go 10 points clear when they play West ham tonight at the London stadium. West ham are the one of the two teams that have managed to beat Chelsea this season and the loss did come at the London stadium in the EFL Cup that was eventually won by Manchester United.

In an interview with Sky Sports Antonio Conte stressed the importance of tonight’s game saying the only way his players will be remembered is by winning each game that comes. He also said that the last time they visited the London stadium it did not end well for them. There was some disturbance from the West ham fans who clashed with Chelsea fans during the game.

Conte hopes tonight security will be improved and that his team will have a good match. The team needs to win to keep their lead secure at the top as their closest rivals Tottenham and Manchester City both won their respective matches over the weekend. The manager will be depending on his two stars Eden Hazard and Diego Costa to deliver.
