Conte tells Chelsea: 'Don't be stupid'


After a 4-1 hammering at Watford last week, can anyone be confident of a Blues win?

Chelsea have lost their last three encounters with the goal difference of three and the pressure is directly on Conte who has requested the club boar to back him in the hard time and help the club get back on track.

"I repeat, my commitment is totally for this club and we are trying to do our best".

"My task is to try to improve every single player, in every aspect - about mentality also, about the desire, the will to fight, and the tactical aspects". My task is this. I can speak about him very well, as a person and a coach.

"I'm not thinking for one moment about the possibility to go away from this club", he said. I can learn a lot in that aspect. I don't know why, but it happened.

"If you ask if me he needs one month, one day, two months, the rest of the season, I don't know". The Spaniard had initial troubles with his back three weeks ago and the injury took a tool over him when he had to leave the pitch in the FA Cup clash against Norwich. I am this type of coach.

The Blues have some big matches around the corner, including the two Manchester clubs, City and United, back-to-back along with Barcelona in the Champions League. Conte called out the media for negative coverage; claiming that the press are greatly exacerbating the struggles of the defending champions this season. Luis Enrique is rumoured to be the man who will replace him, and Conte revealed he has a friendship with the ex-Roma boss from both managers' time in Italy. I have spoken with him. We didn't concede many goals in the past when Christensen played.

'He reached his targets with Barcelona and Roma, you could see a well-organised team.

"We do this job, and our job is not "difficult", but you must be open and understand the situation can change".

"I think we can talk about two different games". But I am not jealous or envious of other managers. Everyone knows his job, his work. At the same time, I have great respect for everyone's opinion.

If Conte he fails to secure a response against the Baggies on Monday, he could join the long list of Chelsea managers sacked mid-season under Roman Abramovich.

"We have the right mentality because we are working well".

"From the start of my experience with Chelsea they try to stay behind me in every game and they continue to do this and I am happy and proud for this".

Fans at the Emirates have become more and more restless with Wenger over the last few years, with a lack of a serious title challenge and poor performances in Europe ringing in "Wenger Out" protests with increasing regularity, season after season. But, for sure, I'm very happy.

"I think we are ready".

Last Monday, he tried something similar in the second half of the Watford game, switching back to a back-four as Chelsea pushed for an equalizer.
