We all know that in the early years of the Roman Abramovich era, the Russian would have triggered the sack of Antonio Conte after consecutive losses to Bournemouth and Watford.
Chelsea have now lost four of their last five Premier League games, which has put the club’s hopes of a Champions League spot in jeopardy.
However, a report by The Sun claims the Chelsea owner isn’t keen on sacking the Italian despite rumours claiming his time at Stamford Bridge might be up.
Conte has been very vocal in questioning the club’s transfer policy and even accused the board of “lacking ambition” last week, and the report claims his continuous attack of the board might be what could lead to his sack.
According to The Sun, a club source told them: “Roman is not so trigger happy these days when it comes to firing managers.
“Champions League football is important but not a deal breaker.
“These days Roman wants to give his managers every opportunity.
“Conte has been very vocal in criticising the club’s spending on player recruitment and even questioned the board’s ambition.
“The stress point could be if Antonio starts complaining again.
“People are growing weary of it all.”
