Antonio Conte discusses his future after Tottenham defeat
Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has opened up with the press regarding his own future after a 3-1 defeat at home to Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend. The Italian manager has come under immense pressure after a disappointing season on all fronts.
"Now the moment is to try to continue to work with great professionalism. And we are doing this, and we have to try until the end to do our best," said Conte. "But I think if we are in this position, we are deserving of this position."
Tottenham battled back to win 3-1 after going a goal down to the Blues and Chelsea look a different side to the one that romped to the Premier League title last season.
When asked about his own future, Conte quipped: "I repeat, my task is to work, and I know that I work, 24 hours, for Chelsea, me and my staff.
"This is our task. Then the club has to take the decision. But I repeat, I am not worried about this.
"We are working very hard and the commitment of the players is top.
"Despite this, we're staying in this position. We must be a bit worried about this."
Conte is expected to be replaced at the end of the season should he be unable to turn results around.
