Ex-Chelsea boss Conte must take huge pay-cut to take Bordeaux job

Former Chelsea boss Antonio Conte must accept a hefty pay-cut if he wants to take the Bordeaux job.

The Italian has been linked with the French giants after Arsenal legend Thierry Henry rejected the post over the weekend.

Le 10 Sport reports, however, that Conte's hiring is a long shot, with Bordeaux budgeting for a salary of €2.5-3.5m for Gus Poyet's replacement. Conte was earning over €10m-a-year at Chelsea.

Along with Conte, also being linked with the Girondins job is former Chelsea, Leicester City and Nantes coach Claudio Ranieri.
