The Italian manager may be leaving Stamford Bridge at the end of the current premier league campaign. After winning the Premier league trophy in style last season he received a lot of praise from fans and pundits alike for achieving such feet under the noses of great managers like Jose Mourinho and Guardiola but since then things have not worked in his favour. There have always been reports suggesting that the former Juventus manager is unhappy with the transfer policy of the club and his recent poor results has further hinted at his departure. Conte took charge at Chelsea and revolutionised their whole set-up, he introduced the famed 3-4-3 formation at the club and since then, several managers have copied the formation. He has also given quite a lot of chances to young stars and managed to complete the signing of Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid. He managed to bring about a sense of unity at the club that has been missing since Mourinho’s title-winning campaign with the blues.
While Diego Simeone is a good enough choice to replace the Italian but seems completely unnecessary for them to let Conte leave and bring in somebody else. Chelsea have a strong team now and are capable of doing a lot of good things but the chances of all that happening are likely to be stronger under Conte’s watchful eyes. The fans love him and he has a knack for turning things around, which has been quite evident this season. Chelsea’s initial displays made it look like they would finish out of the top seven but if they win their outstanding fixtures, including Liverpool then a champions league spot becomes a possibility. So, the club must hold on to Conte at all cost beyond the end of the season. Antonio Conte is undoubtedly one of the best managers in the world and if he is to leave West London at the end of the current season, clubs like Paris Saint-German and AC Milan will gladly snap up the Italian tactician. Antonio also became the 3rd fastest manger to reach 50 wins in the Premier League as a result of Chelsea’s 1-0 win over Swansea last weekend.
