​Conte hits back over speculation about his Chelsea future

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has been responding to reports that his time at Stamford Bridge is coming to a close.

"There is something strange, if after the first game we lost against Burnley the press pushed quickly to sack me for another coach. I think in other clubs this doesn't happen.

"I have another year of contract. In this case, I think the club has to decide to send me away," said Conte

"We have started our work, our big work here together with the players, then with the club. When you start the work, you need time to improve your work, to create a solid base."

As to stories Max Allegri or Luis Enrique could replace him in the summer.

"Everything is possible," said Conte.

"I have a year contract. Anything is possible. Our job is very difficult. Everything can change."
