Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has admitted he fears getting sacked before the end of his three-year contract at the Stamford Bridge.
The Italian boss joined the Blues last summer after leading Italy national team to the Euro 2016 in France, and has helped Chelsea to a comfortable stance in the Premier League despite having a slow start to life in England.
However, his predecessor Jose Mourinho who got sacked at the Stamford Bridge in 2015, has now warned that modern football does not guarantees job security for managers even if they win the league title.
Antonio Conte has now revealed he might not be able to continue to coach at the Stamford Bridge, saying:
‘I think in this type of modern football, it’s not easy to start a project and to be sure you will stay a long time in the same team. But honestly not only for me, for all coaches.
‘If you have the possibility to stay for many years in the same team, then you can work to improve your idea, to improve your players, but the result in football is very important.
‘We all know this, and we know it can happen, that one season, you can win the title, the next season you can go away.’
Mourinho stressed the idea after Claudio Ranieri was sacked from his position at Leicester City despite leading them to a historic Premier League title win last season.
