EPL: Luis Enrique set to replace Conte as Chelsea boss faces tough February


Chelsea is ready to fire manager Antonio Conte and replace him with former Barcelona boss, Luis Enrique.

Conte’s future at Stamford Bridge, will be determined by four tough fixtures over the next six weeks, starting with their Champions League round of 16 clash against Barcelona.

Reports in Spain claim that Enrique could even be appointed before the first leg on February 20.

The Premier League champions are not happy about recent poor results, especially the 3-0 defeat to Bournemouth at home on Wednesday and Conte’s continued criticism of the club’s policy.

Chelsea is currently in fourth place in the league, 18 points behind leaders Manchester City.

They face a crucial run of games, starting with that first encounter with Barcelona at Stamford Bridge followed by away trips to the Manchester giants — City and United.

After a home game against Crystal Palace, it’s the return with Barca at the Nou Camp.

Conte is rumoured to be planning a summer exit, but if the poor form persists, the club might be forced to bring forward his departure.
