Antonio Conte has admitted that “everything is possible” when asked about reports that Chelsea are lining up Luis Enrique or Massimiliano Allegri to succeed him at Stamford Bridge this summer.
He said: “Everything is possible. I have another year of contract at this club, but in football everything in possible. Football is this.
“For the manager of this club it is normal to have this type of situation. [Even] if you won the league last season and reach the final of the FA Cup, this is the history. I have a lot of experience to deal with this situation.
“There is something strange that after the first game we lost against Burnley the press pushed quickly to sack me. In other clubs this doesn’t happen. I trust in my work and what we are doing in these two seasons. In football, anything can happen and you must be ready.”
He added. “It wasn’t easy [at the start] as it was my first experience in another country. I am enjoying to live in England and [work] with my players.
“I have another year of contract and in this case I think the club has to decide to send me away. We have started our work here. When you start the work, you need time to improve your work and have solid basis.
“Football now is very difficult [to] predict if you stay for many years in one club. England is changing this equation. Before managers were in charge for many years, but now in England it is habit to sack early.”
