Chelsea captain Cahill: We've felt Conte uncertainty

Chelsea captain Gary Cahill admits speculation over manager Antonio Conte's future has weighed on the players this season.

Cahill admitted the Blues' managerial situation needs addressing one way or another — if the club are to improve on fifth place in the Premier League.

After lifting the FA Cup, he said: “We feel the sense of uncertainty. That is obvious to everybody in the last few months.

“What I can say is the players do not have any impact on that situation.

“If I was guessing, I'm sure the club and the manager would have spoken. Let's see.

“All I can say is, that it has been a great finish. If the manager stays next year, then he stays.

“If he doesn't then he has gone with a Premier League and an FA Cup. That is something everyone at the club can be proud of."
