Chelsea started the season slowly with some insipid performances and an opening day loss to Burnley. A string of bad performances led to speculation around Antonio Conte’s future, with some reports claiming that he could be on his way to AC Milan.

Chelsea have now won three league games in a row and Blues legend Marcel Desailly wants Conte to end the season on a high with Chelsea before focusing on his future next year.

“I just want him to finish the season,” Desailly told Omnisport.

“We want Chelsea to be at a certain level. Next year, it’s the business which allows him to stay or go. That’s not my problem.

“I want him now to bring back his philosophy and his cleverness. When he came, he really changed the system.

“Playing in England with three at the back was tough, with all of the space you leave on the wings. He managed to do it and win the league with it quite easily.

“He can do whatever he wants next year. We love him and another one will come. You don’t look at the players or the managers, it’s the club which is important.”
