The Chelsea supporters here in the Transfer Tavern have been amazed with their team’s turnaround on the pitch since the arrival of interim boss Guus Hiddink, with the contingent now of the belief that the Blues can secure European football through the league this season.
The landlord here in the Tavern is catching up with his newspaper when he spots some more good news for the Chelsea fans, from today’s Express, which claims Antonio Conte is set to be announced as the new permanent manager.
The Italy boss has been in discussions with the Chelsea hierarchy for some time and owner Roman Abramovich is keen for Conte to learn the language, upon his arrival.
One Chelsea fan is awaiting the pub quiz and he thinks that Conte is an okay choice but would have preferred someone with a bit more of a knowledge of the English Premier League, as the club’s next manager.
Chelsea fans… What do you make to the imminent arrival of Conte? How far can he take Chelsea?
