The news that Chelsea manager is furious with Chelsea’s board over the club’s lack of striking alternatives doesn’t look good for his future at Stamford Bridge.
Spanish forward suffered a hamstring injury in Chelsea Premier League game against Manchester City last Saturday and has now pulled out of international duty with the La Furia Roja (Spain).
As indicated by The Times, Conte is unhappy that Chelsea’s hierarchy were not able to sign another striker to serve as a back-up option for Morata in the summer transfer window and believes the club fouled up the deal to sign Fernando Llorente from Swansea City.
Llorente ended up joining Tottenham on transfer deadline day, which implied the Premier League champions left it past the point where it is possible to find a suitable option. With Tammy Abraham joining Swansea City on loan and Conte unconvinced by Michy Batshuayi, Chelsea depends vigorously on Morata.
While Conte’s outrage is justifiable, he would do well to remember that the manager’s position at Stamford Bridge isn’t the most secure job in the Premier League.
Roman Abramovich isn’t known for his patience and his eagerness to roll out improvements could undoubtedly see Conte heading for the exit.
Luiz Felipe Scolari, Villas-Boas, Claudio Ranieri, and Carlo Ancelotti are among the managers Abramovich has shown the exit door, while Jose Mourinho’s two takeoffs from Chelsea proves even the ‘Special One’ among them didn’t generally deserve a special treatment from the Russian’s billionaire.
Chelsea are now six points behind both City and Manchester United after just seven games and Conte could be on a brink of leaving Stamford Bridge if he allows his outrage with the board to wind up wild.
