Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has admitted he doesn’t know if he will be Chelsea boss next season due to Chelsea’s history of sacking managers. Conte insists it’s up to Chelsea to decide whether he will be Chelsea boss next season.

When asked if he will be Chelsea boss next season, Conte said: “For the manager of this club it’s normal to have this type of situation, also if you won last season the league and you reached the final in the FA Cup.

“This is the history of this club for the manager.

“I have a lot of experience to deal with this type of situation. (But) there is something strange if, after the first game we lost against Burnley, the press pushed quickly to sack me for another coach. I think in other clubs this doesn’t happen.”

Conte revealed it is impossible to predict whether he will remain at Stamford Bridge, saying his future was simply in the hands of the club.

“I have another year of (my) contract with this club. But as you know very well everything is possible,” Conte added.

“In one moment you stay here, in another moment another person replaces you in your job.”

Asked if he would extend his contract with Chelsea, Conte added: “In this case, I think the club has to decide to send me away.

“We have started a big work here together with the players and then with the club. When you start a work you need time to improve your work, to create a solid basis.

“But in football now it is very difficult to predict if you can stay for many years at one club, especially in England.

“Before in England, the managers were in charge for many, many years but now teams are happy to sack their manager early.”
