Antonio Conte Says He's Very Angry and Sad About Chelsea's Season

Callum Hudson Odoi could get his chance against West Ham

The former Italy manager's future is under intense scrutiny at this stage, with the likes of Massimiliano Allegri and Luis Enrique linked with moves to become the next Chelsea manager.

The feeble surrender of their title has seen Conte's position come under increasing scrutiny and it still remains unclear if he will be in charge at the start of next season.

Gianluca Vialli, a former Chelsea manager and Juventus team-mate of Conte's, claims his old friend can't wait to leave the west London club after growing exhausted of his lack of influence on the squad's make-up.

Club legend Frank Leboeuf has suggested that some members of the Chelsea squad are trying to get Antonio Conte sacked.

Chelsea lost 3-1 to Tottenham at Stamford Bridge last weekend to fall eight points behind Spurs in the race for a top-four spot and Champions League football next season.

"I predicted it would be very hard for me at the start of the season. The other speculation is not true".

"But I've not been talking to him for one year maybe".

"They know I am trying to put all of myself to change this situation because I have great responsibility".

"In this league, we have this problem: to understand the humour of the players".

"We must be realistic and see the defeat [to Tottenham] was a bad defeat for us", he said.

Their lacklustre performance in Chelsea's first home defeat to Tottenham for 28 years hardly erased that impression.

"With Gianluca, we played together for many years at Juventus, he was my captain, we won the Champions League together and I consider him a friend", he added.

"We saw it with Mourinho, it seemed like some of the players were nearly losing on objective so the manager can get sacked as quickly as possible".

Speaking ahead of Sunday's game, the Italian said: 'After a defeat it is not simple but at the same time everyone must show pride in this moment and show great desire. These are two different situations and it is not right to mix them.
