EPL: Ian Wright reveals when Chelsea will sack Conte



Former Arsenal striker, Ian Wright, has said that Chelsea will stick with manager Antonio Conte until the end of the season.

Wright however claims Conte will not be at Stamford Bridge next season.

Despite winning the Premier League title last season, Conte is under increasing pressure at Chelsea following a string of poor results, most recently a 4-1 defeat at Watford.

The Italian is also understood to enjoy a poor relationship with the club’s board, after repeatedly criticizing the club’s transfer policy.

“No I do not (think he will still be at Chelsea next season),” Wright said on The Debate.

“When you see him talking about and actually mentioning the length of his contract, saying, ‘I have 18 months left and I am not going’ it is almost as if he is saying, ‘if they want me to go, they are going to have to get rid of me’.

“It is a sad situation that they now find themselves in because I cannot understand that Chelsea would promise him something else for him to be getting so angry like he is.

“I genuinely believe it is because Chelsea have stuck to their guns and said, ‘no, we are going to buy the players’.

“So no, I do not think he will still be there next season as the people upstairs have now had enough.”
