Former Chelsea manager and striker Gianluca Vialli has revealed that his country man Antonio Conte can’t wait to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.
The future of the Blues manager has been the subject of intense speculation all season. Conte enjoyed a fantastic first season in English football winning the Premier League and FA Cup Final.
However, his constant public complaints about his clubs transfer policy and poor results on the pitch, culminating in his sides 3-1 home loss to London rivals Spurs on Sunday that means the Stamford Bridge outfit now look all but certain to miss out on a place in the top four this season, have meant that the chances of him remaining on as manager past the end of the season have looked slim for some time now.
Vialli, who managed Chelsea between 1998-2000 and was also a team-mate of Conte’s at Juventus has told Sky Italia that the 48-year-old is looking forward to breaking ties with the Blues, and that he will have no shortage of suitors once he does depart his current club.
“Conte can’t wait to leave Chelsea,”
“He can’t stand that they sell or buy players without consulting him. The truth is, Chelsea would like a manager who is more of a club man.
“Whether it’s the Nazionale or Paris Saint-Germain, he’ll find a place where he can start winning something important again. There will be a queue of contracts for him to sign.” Vialli said.
