Antonio Conte’s fate as the manager of Chelsea is hanging in the balance at the moment but it will become clear if he’d continue to manage the dethroned Premier League Champions after their FA Cup final game against Manchester United this weekend.
Tottenham manager Mauricio Pochettino and Napoli boss Maurizio Sarri have been linked with the Stamford Bridge job but reports have indicated that the aforementioned Tottenham boss has decided against taking a role with Chelsea.
Since take charge of Tottenham in the summer of 2014, Pochettino has aided the Lilywhites to grow in leaps and bounds – albeit he has not won any title with the North London club, they are currently among the ‘Big four’ of the English Premier League.
The Daily Star reports that Pochettino has decided to reject the advances of Chelsea and stay put to fulfill the vision of Tottenham.
Tottenham were hardly involved in the last summer transfer window and Pochettino laid bare his mind on the situation, asking Spurs Chairman Daniel Levy to splash some cash in order to get the side to compete for Silverware next term upwards.
The Argentinean tactician even threatened to quit Tottenham if the brass of the club fail to splash the cash to bolster his squad. Nonetheless, the report has further claimed that Pochettino is now at peace knowing that he will be fully supported in the summer.
It was Pochettino’s claim that lured Chelsea to make a move on him but they have to look elsewhere if they must appoint a replacement for Conte.
Conte like Pochettino has complained about the transfer policy of Chelsea but the Blues had spent on some signing including shattering their personal record to sign Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid.
