Chelsea legend Wise: Top managers still want to work for this club

Chelsea legend Dennis Wise has no doubts they can continue to attract top line managers.

Speculation that Antonio Conte is set to be axed intensified after his side were beaten 4-1 by London rivals Watford on Monday night.

“I don't think they'll run out of being able to appoint a top level coach," Wise told Sky Sports.

“There will always be someone who will want to manage Chelsea.

“They have spent some serious money - it's not like they have been spending small change.

“They've paid big amounts for certain players like Danny Drinkwater and Bakayoko.

“It's not ideal for Conte in terms of the players that have gone out of Chelsea.

"But don't forget there are still some very good players left at the club.

“If you're the head coach, you're there to coach them.

"It's not in your job description to bring them in."
