Antonio Conte future

Antonio Conte cuts a frustrated figure during the Champions League group game between Roma and Chelsea on October 31, 2017

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is expected to leave the club this summer following a disappointing 2017-18 campaign.

The Italian steered his side to the title in record-breaking fashion last season, but ended up 30 points behind champions Manchester City this time around.

A fifth-placed finish means that there will be no Champions League football for the Blues next season, although they could still end the campaign with silverware should they win the FA Cup final against Manchester United.

Should Conte be sacked then he would be the third successive title-winning manager to lose his job the following season, following Jose Mourinho and Claudio Ranieri in getting the boot.
