Football News: Players would not decide my future- Conte

Football News

Despite some rumors says that the senior players played a major role in the sacking of prior Chelsea managers, but the Italian manager is not concerned about his dressing room unrest.


In their last game, Chelsea was thrashed by Watford, Chelsea conceded 4 goals in that match, but in the post-match, Conte claimed himself as a winner despite they faced two defeats in a row in six days, and the Italian mastermind does not believe that player power could hold his key at Stamford Bridge.


One UK newspaper says that Chelsea would sack him after they lost their home game by 3-0 goals against Bournemouth, and following this defeat against Watford.


In the match against Watford, Tiemoue Bakayoko picked up a red card in the first half, and after that in the second half goals from Daryl Janmaat, Gerard Deulofeu and Roberto Pereyra gave them a heavy defeat within six days, this is the first time the Blues have lost consecutive matches by the margin of three goals science 1995.


Right now the pressure is mounting on the Italian tactician, although in that match the Belgium star Hazard scored the only goal for Chelsea, also he was among the Key players who performed below par.


In the post-match conference, Conte voiced: "It is very difficult for me to transfer my thoughts,"


"I hope tonight you understand me, I am not worried about my job. I work every day and give 100 per cent. I am not worried.


"Every day and every press conference I am asked, but no. Tomorrow is another day. My soul is clear and I go to sleep without the problem that maybe I could do this. I try to do everything. If this problem becomes of the club it is okay. Life goes on.


"Do you think that a club can decide to sack a coach if there is not the support of the players? I think only here, only here, you think this. You think that the players have this power? Yes? This is wrong. This is wrong. If this happens, okay.


"But, I repeat, in my life when I was a player, I was captain of Juventus and never, ever, did I speak about a coach with my club. And, if the club tried to ask me, this is not my problem


"My task is to work with these players and to have honest players and they work with commitment. The problem is you try to create the problem. I do my job and I have zero issue to sleep.


"For sure, this is a difficult moment. If we want to find excuses, alibis, we can find everything. Tiredness, injuries… but this is not my way to face the situation, to solve the problem.


"The problems – you have to solve with work. You don't win with excuses. In my life, I like to be a winner – and I'm a winner."
