Antonio Conte explains training-ground meeting with Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich

Antonio Conte

The Sack Race has already gobbled up and spat out three managers this season, and at the time of writing Conte is priced at 10/1 to be its next victim.

He might not have played in the Champions League group stage tie against Roma, but Kenedy received a telling off after yawning during a Conte speech at Cobham Training Ground, according to The Telegraph.

Should Chelsea lose, and Man City beat Arsenal, then they'd be a whopping 12 points off the pace after just 11 matches.which would significantly increse the pressure on Conte during the worldwide break.

It has been said that the pair have not spoken to each other in months, with any communication between the manager and the owner going via club director Marina Granovskaia.

Abramovich is also unhappy that Conte has had many conflicts with his players.

Relations strained after Conte's mishandling of the Diego Costa situation, with Marca even suggesting the hunt has already begun for Conte's successors.


Conte has failed to resolve his relationship with the players and it is continuing to deteriorate. We played a really good first half and we were 2-0 down but, honestly, I was more anxious after the first half at Stamford Bridge when we were winning 2-1 but didn't have the control of the game.

Danny Drinkwater returned to action in midweek and looks certain to start against United, although Conte is aware he is still short of full match fintess.

The Italian's stinging criticism came after the frustrations of the side's poor form over the past six weeks finally boiled over.

I have great respect for Tottenham. I want to help my club build the same solid foundation. I thought this season would be hard, we lost a lot of strong players that built a strong base.

"We have to work together and take responsibility".
