Conte not worried about the sack, despite Watford defeat

Antonio Conte is not worried about being sacked, despite a humiliating 4-1 defeat at the hands of Watford.

It was a difficult night for Chelsea at Vicarage Road, being forced to play for an hour with just 10 men after Tiemoue Bakayoko was booked twice within five first half minutes.

They looked like they had rescued a point when Eden Hazard equalised with just eight minutes to play, but a late Watford onslaught saw the Blues walk away with no points.

Speculation before the game suggested that Chelsea boss Antonio Conte could be sacked if he failed to win this game following a recent run of poor results, but the Italian didn’t seem too concerned about that prospect.

Asked by Sky Sports after the game whether he has concerns about his future at the club, Conte said:

“No. It is not my problem. I try to do my job. I try to put everything in my job. If this is enough, it’s okay. Otherwise they can take their decision.”

In his post-match press conference Conte added:

“I’m not worried about my job. I work every day and I give 120 per cent, okay? If this is enough, it’s okay. Otherwise, the club can take a different decision. But I’m not worried.

“It’s very difficult because every press conference you ask me: are you worried about your job? No. I am not worried.”
