Chelsea’s board are starting to lose faith in manager Antonio Conte, according to reports in The Mirror.
The Italian coach has repeatedly criticised his clubs hierarchy for not strengthening his squad sufficiently during the summer transfer window.
However, the Stamford Bridge board believe that Conte is far from blameless for his sides inconsistent form this season.
The Blues currently sit 14 points off league leaders Man City and face a difficult Champions League second round tie against the mighty Barcelona.
The club are unhappy with the formers Juventus coaches repeated complaints about their transfer policy, and believe that with the £187 million they spent this summer their team should be doing a lot better.
Conte’s falling out with David Luiz is also a contentious matter, as the Brazilian defender is popular with both players and staff at the club.
The Italian coach has had a tumultuous relationship with the club since arriving in London in June 2016, and there were even rumours a few months into his tenure last season that he was about to be sacked, before his side went on to win the Premier League title.
It now seems that the relationship will come to an end sooner rather than later, with PSG waiting in the wings to hire Conte.
