Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has often worn a gloomy face this season and has criticised the Chelsea board for the most part of the season.

Chelsea now find themselves in fifth place and five points behind Tottenham Hotspur in fourth, and the Italian has recently questioned Chelsea’s lack of ambition.

However, Sky Sports pundit Craig Bellamy has told the Italian to be happy with the money Chelsea have so far spent in the transfer market.

“He hasn’t been happy from day one,” Bellamy told The Debate on Sky Sports.

“I’m a big fan of his but I don’t agree with the complaints about a lack of ambition at the club.

“He won the league last year and has spent more than £200m this season, what more ambition do you want?

“How many managers would give for that?”

One of Conte’s main issues is that he doesn’t have complete control over signing players, but Bellamy insists that shouldn’t be an issue and told the Chelsea boss to get on with his job.

“When Matic left [to join Manchester United] he made it clear that wasn’t his decision,” he added.

“And a new player might have come in that’s not your ideal choice, but you have to get on with it.

“Going and talking about it in interviews is just not great for the players to hear.”
