Antonio Conte must be a worried man at the moment though for things not happening at his current club. The Chelsea boss was visibly annoyed that countryman, Claudio Ranieri was booted out of the job just nine months from winning the league in remarkable circumstances last season.
The 65-year-old got sacked on Thursday, sending the football world into shock and proving that success in football is based on the present, not the past or even, the recent past. Chelsea are currently 10 points clear at the top of the table, but next season will be the true test of his work at the club.
“I think that in this football, in this type of modern football, it is not easy to start a project or to be sure you will stay in a for a long time in the same team,” Conte said as quoted by 90mins.com.
“It is not only for me but for all coaches. “Then for sure if you have the possibility to stay for many years in the same team, yeah, you can work to improve your idea.
You can work to improve your players.“But the results…the results in football are very important. We all know this and it can happen that one season you win the title and the next you can be going on your way.” he added
So many clubs will strengthen their squad next season, making sure that there will be an even closer race for the title, and he knows that the club won’t get patient if results start to go south. Conte, however armed with the knowledge of how things change will also strengthen and make sure his team are not left behind as things heat up in the division.
