Our Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are looking at who could possibly be replacing Antonio Conte if his time is up at the club, either now or at the end of the campaign.
The Italian hasn’t had the best of seasons so far and it seems, to our regulars, that the curse of winning the Premier League is striking again. In recent seasons many managers that have won the title have been dismissed the season after and it’s looking like it’s following suit this year too.
So far this year, Conte has only won three games and after being knocked out of the Carabao Cup semi-final by rivals Arsenal the pressure cooker of Stamford Bridge has really heated up. Much has been made of former Barcelona boss Luis Enrique taking over at the helm, but as of yet, it seems they are sticking with Conte.
