Conte To Clarify Future After FA Cup Final

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte will clarify his future with the club after they take on Manchester United in the FA Cup Final at Wembley on 19th May.

After a successful first season in charge, Conte signed an improved contract at the end of last summer, but not an extension, to his three-year deal.

However his second season in charge has been disappointing with the head coach supposedly unhappy with the clubs transfer policy and with 12 months still remaining on his £9.6million-per-year contract, there is speculation he will be sacked.

But the Italian has insisted that finishing in the Premier League top four is more of a priority than his own future and with a recent upturn in form that has seen Chelsea win four Premier League games on the bounce this is feasible.

“It is very difficult to comment on speculation because there has been speculation around me from the start of the season, after the first game against Burnley,” Conte ahead of Wednesday’s match..

“This speculation is not important to me because my focus is only to do my work in the best possible way with my players. I am doing this from the start until the end.

“There are only two weeks and this season will finish, and you will know if there is a different situation or if you see me again next season.”

Chelsea who are currently battling for a Champions League qualification through a top-four finish in the Premier League, host Huddersfield on Wednesday before a trip to Newcastle on Sunday, two games they need to focus on and win.

A host of names are already being linked what many presume will be a vacant managerial position next month as the club has gained a reputation for the quick hiring and firing of managers.
