Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has been swimming in a lot of rumours linking him away from his job at Chelsea and on the other end in plenty of sharp remarks and criticisms after a disastrous last campaign with the Blues.
Despite the rumours of his replacement in Maurizio Sarri, former Napoli manager and early favourite Luis Enrique, Blues owner Roman Abramovich has yet to say a word against the Italian tactician since their slip to sixth last term.
But according to Spanish outlet Don Balon via the Express, Abramovich has confided in Enrique, former Barcelona chief on the future of the Italian.
Enrique was touted early in the opening of the summer window to replace Conte before Sarri came into the picture.
And Don Balon claims, Abramovich will give Conte another chance and will refuse the temptation to sack him.
In this manner, he will strike out Enrique as his replacement and let him keep his job.
Meanwhile, Conte has reaffirmed that he’s going nowhere, though many are calling for his sack.
The Italian believes he should be given a chance to show that he can achieve more with the West Londoners.
“I have a contract and I’m committed to this club, despite a lot of speculation.
“You can tell what you want, but I’m a serial winner. I showed this in England in a difficult moment for the club, after 10th place.” Said Conte.
Conte is strong-willed and says he’ll respect the terms on his contract no matter what.
