The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern aren’t happy as they’ve been reading their Italian gaffer’s comments ahead of the FA Cup final tomorrow. In his press conference ahead of the game, via Chelsea’s official Twitter account, he stated that he has a contract and is committed to the club, leading to an uproar from the fans.
Conte says he has a contract and is committed to the club. #CHEMAN

Antonio Conte in the 2016/17 season and Antonio Conte in the 2017/18 season are two very different people. Last season, when the ex-Italy man won the Premier League, Conte was full of life, celebrating every goal on the touchline like it might be the last he’d ever see. This season, however, he’s been a shadow of that, looking dejected and lifeless in his dugout, with a number of Chelsea’s performances on the pitch mirroring that.
Despite the difference in his persona, Conte could still find himself ending this season with as many trophies as he ended last season with. Conte scooped the Premier League title last season but fell short in the FA Cup when Arsene Wenger’s Arsenal won 2-1 at Wembley in last year’s final. This season, things can be different as Conte has yet another chance to win the most famous cup competition in the world when he takes on Manchester United tomorrow.
