EPL: Abramovich changes mind about sacking Conte


Chelsea will stick with manager Antonio Conte until at least the end of the season.

Sky Sports News reports that Blues owner, Roman Abramovich, is against employing a short-term fix ahead of a busy few weeks of fixtures.

The Premier League champions will face both Manchester clubs in the Premier League and Barcelona over two legs in the Champions League last-16 in February.

Conte will be given time to turn the Blues’ fortunes around, after a poor run of form, that has seen the team lose back-to-back to Bournemouth at home and Watford away.

It is also understood that the board have not approached any possible replacement for the Italian.

Carlo Ancelotti and Luis Enrique are the two names that have been linked with the role at Stamford Bridge.
