Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has challenged the Chelsea board to issue a vote of confidence in him amid reports Chelsea want a change of manager at the end of the season.

Conte wants Abramovich to publicly show him support, something Chelsea have done just once since Abramovich bought the club.

The only time Chelsea under Abramovich have issued a vote of confidence on a manager was in October 2015 when the board issued a vote of confidence on then Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho but then sacked him two months later.

“I must be honest, when there are these types of rumours since the first game of the season against Burnley… maybe I’d like the club to prepare a statement for me to say they trust me in my work and my job,” Conte said.

“At the same time, I know this has never happened in the past, so why should I hope for something different? So it’s a big challenge to change the approach now. But, for sure, I’d be glad.”

    Conte need to be sacked before 14th February. If not, this man will disgrace Chelsea F/C
    against Barcelona F/C.

    • You not serious are you ? Chelsea must change it’s system of sacking managers just after a season and half. Give mighty Conte time to lay a foundation . We are tired of money game . We want good football .

    What is happening at Chelsea? Why is it that the coach is not given chance to recruit his own prefered players ? Antonio Conte is a good coach recognised worldwide but he is not being assisted by the people responsible. Just look at the calibre of players who were recruited in the January transfer window, they are not quality players if we are to compare them with those recruited by the top six clubs. It was the same with Jose Mourinho, why is the same thing happening at our club? Can the people responsible find solutions to the confusion at our beloved club please.

  3. Antoino Conte supposed to be sacked, his formation now can not take Chelsea anywhere

    Sacking him will never solve the problem. Chelsea needs flexible, utility and good strikers like Griezmann and other first class players. Hazard, Azpilicueta, Kante, Moses are the only players seeing at chelsea dis moment. Bakayoko, Cahill should be benched and go to china to play.

  6. You are very stupid for saying that. What wrong has he done?

  7. conte should be sacked….

  8. If conte realy want to stay at chelsea he should stop using Bakayoko his not a good player at all he always made mistake in every match he played know confidence to control ball, likewise cahil he doesn’t have confidence to contol, and to use ball on the pitch two of them should be always breach ok and for conte he need to change his formation if he realy want to make the top 4

    Sacking can not help than to give technical assistance to the coach. Conte as known by everyone is and was the best coach, but Chelsea is a club full of stress. Give him time and follow his needs, things will be better.

    Conte is not the problem for chealsea.. it is that use bakayoko should be sell off? let give conte another chance and support i believe he will deliver.. Up Chealsea..

  11. great point bro

  12. why does conte likes to start bakayoko instead of drinkwater and ross barkley/ he really has to bench bakayoko on the match between CHELSEA & BARCA

  13. Sacking Conte is just d beginning of the end for chelsea. even if chelsea picked up Pep Giadiola, with out the backing and support of the board, nothing will come out of it. Give conte the players he need then u can hang him.

  14. The problem of Chelsea was not only Conte but the lion share should be taken by Technical board. Please give a chance for the coach to recruit players he want like Machester United and City.

  15. This guy should resign and avoid the shame of sack, you cant be fielding bakayoko and you see him making same mistakes in everygame. or does bakayoko hold the key to the cabinet of first eleven? bench him and let him see the better chelsea without him, hes the burden that will sack Conte

    Cahill,Bakoyoko are not good enough to play for Chelsea and Fabregas becomes a liability because he cannot tackle. Try other players even though people like Zapppa Costa are average.Rudiger given more matches is promising.

  17. full of support is wat conte need right now as for bakayoko he need to be bench lets play ross barkley, n giroud as standing 9 nt hazard again up chelsea

    BUSINESS MEN UNDSTAND::::::if u want to b a successful man/woman in business buy the goods that people wants,now u ar expecting the team to be better when u ar buying d wrong players,give conte a chance he is not the problem,the board is the problem period!!!!!!!!!!

  20. We need Chelsea board to allow coaches begin buying players that they need than the board selling magic a good player and then bring in fake bakayoko who supposed to play in championship he has caused Chelsea 80% problems at Chelsea give conte opportunity to purchase its players,

  21. If Chelsea board can sell strikers like Diego Costa, Debryne,schurle,salary and begin buying flops like Virus even Arsenal who could buy quality strikers they are now doing it until when coaches will be given rights to buy players they need like mourinhio at Manchester united now he has built it the team can now compete in champions league Chelsea quality’s to play in championship with Giroud and Bakayoko quality.
