Former England Boss Indicates Antonio Conte Should Have Ignored Jose Mourinho Comments

The 24-year-old started only two Premier League games this term, has been restricted to substitute appearances as Antonio Conte preferred to play Eden Hazard as a forward ahead of his fellow Belgian in the absence of Alvaro Morata.

The Italian might get replaced by Enrique this summer if he fails to produce any success in the second half of the season.

With Manchester City completely running away with the Premier League title it seems that the two coaches have created some drama to deflect from their side's underperformance compared to Pep Guardiola's men, but it seems that the feud has gone way beyond anyone could imagine. Football now is very hard if you can predict if you stay for many years in one club.

And today Mourinho said: "I think when a person insults another you can expect a response, or you can expect contempt".

The future of the current Blues' head coach has come under increasing speculation this season, as the relationship between the Italian and the club's board have become strained over Chelsea's transfer policy. Our job is very hard, everything can change.


I've been really impressed with Waford's Richarlison since his arrival in the Premier League, and I'm backing him to score anytime here.

The move was something of a surprise, given that the 27-year-old is one of Chelsea's top talents, and it prompted fears that Hazard could have picked up an injury.

"He is not ready 100 per cent, but I think he can start to help us for the rest of the season". I'm enjoying to live in this atmosphere and to work with my players. The history of Chelsea speaks clearly.

"The press are used to speaking a lot about Chelsea and the manager of Chelsea". It doesn't change the situation. "I can give my opinion to my club for every situation, then they have to make the best decision and that is right".

"You must trust in your work, trust in what we're doing, what we have done in the last season and a half". In football now it's very hard to predict if you can stay for many years in one club, especially now in England. I have a lot of experience in dealing with this type of situation but there is something unusual if after the first game, which we lost against Burnley, the press push quickly to sack me.
