Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has defended his time at Chelsea and reasoned why he should get the full compensation from Chelsea he is seeking in a legal battle against the club from South West London.
Conte took charge of the Blues in 2016 and had a brilliant first season when his team won the league title. He took on the debut season in a world war of managers with Mourinho, Klopp, Wenger, Pochettino and Guardiola in charge of other top teams but Conte prevailed.
His Chelsea team followed his 3 man back system as Conte’s men went on a 13 match win streak. Top scorer Diego Costa however, soon fell out with Conte and the follow up season was a bust as Conte sent the forward a message telling him about his ommision from the team.
Chelsea performed poorly on the pitch as well as the team finished fifth and the Blues hierarchy decided to sack Conte in July last year. This meant that the Italian was supposed to get a compensation for his 3 year contract which had another year to run but the Blues lawyers’ have taken the battle to court saying that the manager broke several rules which cost the club a lot of money, including throwing out Costa and parking the car in wrong areas.
Let’s see now who wins this ugly war but it does not look pretty for either side.
