Chelsea manager drops an update on his future

Chelsea to decide on Conte's future this month

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has revealed that his future will be resolved at the end of the current campaign. The Blues have three more matches left in the season and this includes a crunch FA Cup final against Manchester United.

Conte, 48, has received plenty of criticism for his team's performances this term and the midweek game against Huddersfield Town could mark his final match in charge at Stamford Bridge.

Speaking ahead of the game, Conte said: "There are only two weeks and this season will finish and you will know if there is a different situation or not. If you see me again next season and we start again from the first game speculating about my future."

The Blues have been far off from matching their league efforts from the previous campaign but they could still finish the season with a Champions League spot.

Chelsea are currently in need of victories in their remaining league fixtures against Huddersfield Town and Newcastle United and they would thereafter need one of Tottenham or Liverpool to slip up.

Conte's current deal is due to expire at the end of the 2018/19 season but he may not serve the final year of his contract with the Blues looking into the likes of Leonardo Jardim and Maurizio Sarri to replace him.
