Rumours of the Chelsea board contemplating sacking Antonio Conte following Chelsea‘s poor run before the win against Watford on Saturday was all over the media.
Following Chelsea’s 4-2 win over Watford on Saturday, Conte insisted he doesn’t fear being sacked because he knows he gives 150 percent for Chelsea.
“To be honest here, I never fear the sack. I feel a lot of pressure but that is what I put on myself,” Conte said.
“I trust in myself, my work and will do everything for the club.
“When I go home at night I know I have given 150 per cent.”
It would be senseless for the board to sack Conte following the mini crisis the team passed through. The squad have been depleted due to injury and it really doesn’t make sense sacking the Italian after he led Chelsea to the title last season.
Chelsea fans are solidly behind the Italian and it’s important the board know this.
