Chelsea advised to think carefully before parting with Antonio Conte

The Italian has been linked with a summer exit

Antonio Conte took over the charge of Chelsea in the summer of 2016 and won the Premier League title on his debut season.

But the Blue’s title defense haven’t gone according to their plan as they have finished fifth and will miss the Champions League next season.

Conte has been linked with a summer exit for quite some now after a decline in club’s performances this season. The coach’s future has been under scrutiny since before the season began, as he negotiated a pay-rise without extending his contract and complaints over the club’s transfer policy.

Former Chelsea striker Gianluca Vialli believes the former Juventus manager has done a good job and has warned the Premier League giants to think carefully before deciding to let him go this summer.

“If I was Antonio I would think twice about leaving Chelsea, if I was Chelsea I would think three times about letting Antonio go,” he told Sky Sports News. “It’s a good match and I hope it will continue.

“I think he has done incredibly well last season, winning the championship [Premier League] which is always complicated in a competition which has six or seven clubs capable of winning.

“The competition is incredibly tough but he managed to do it in a great manner.

“The season after you win the championship is always more complicated. The competition are hungrier and stronger, so I think he did everything possible this season.

“They did extremely well in the Champions League until getting knocked out by, I would not say Barcelona but Lionel Messi. If he had been playing for Chelsea it would have been 5-0 both times to Chelsea.

“Getting to the final of the FA Cup is a massive achievement, so overall he is going great and I hope it continues.”
