Conte 'not worried' about Chelsea future

LONDON, United Kingdom, Apr 2- Antonio Conte insisted that he was not anxious about his future after defeat to Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday left Chelsea eight points behind their London rivals in the race for the final Champions League qualification spot. A promising start was undone by avoidable errors and a creeping passivity. In fact, the former Blues striker has claimed that Conte is excited for his Chelsea tenure to come to an end.

As the season draws to a close so do Antonio Conte's days in West London and it seems that the Italian himself wants to get done with the Chelsea job as soon as possible, at least that's what his former Italy and Juventus teammate Gianluca Vialli seems to think. Tottenham Hotspur outclassed Chelsea in their backyard for the first time in 28 years.

Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino said he had complete faith in Dele Alli, despite the negativity surrounding him of late. The growing ambivalence has been fuelled by the sharp decline on the pitch, but just as detrimental to the head coach's status has been the atmosphere created by his constant whining.

This inability to sign players of the required standard had a directly negative effect on the team, most notably against Burnley, when the manager was left woefully short of options. He has been hindered by Chelsea's limitations and mistakes in the transfer market.

Tottenham have now beaten Manchester United, Liverpool, Chelsea and Arsenal this season.

'We don't just want to be a team that gets there one or two years and then falls off.

Too often in 2017-18 he has patrolled his technical area in tired silence, greeting adversity with baffling inaction, as if the slave rather than the master of his own fate.

Antonio Conte won the Premier League title during his debut season with Chelsea.

Fans of Chelsea and Tottenham clashed after the Premier League tie between the London rivals.

Gary Neville said on his podcast after the Tottenham match: "I don't think he's going to be here next season".

"To lose in this manner against Tottenham suggests that Conte's era is coming to a disappointing end". Similarly, in a fixture against Bournemouth, he was forced to use Eden Hazard as a false 9.

"My task is to work, and I know that I and my staff work 24 hours a day for Chelsea", said Conte.

Change has been one of the few constants of the Roman Abramovich era, and not always for the better.

Things were not looking as rosy for Spurs when a Hugo Lloris mistake allowed Alvaro Morata to put Chelsea into the lead, but as has been the mandate this season for Conte's men, they failed to capitalise on their chances and allowed Spurs to get a foothold back into the game through Eriksen, who picked up from right where he had left off before the global break.

He may have distanced himself from the decision-making process, but the club hierarchy are not in turn happy with the Italian's strategy to point fingers at others.
