Antonio Conte rejects claim he wants to leave Chelsea

Vialli made the comment in his role as a pundit for Sky Sports Italia during Chelsea's 3-1 defeat by Tottenham Hotspur on Sunday that left Conte's team eight points behind Spurs in the race to secure Champions League football next season. "We change - I don't know what".

"When I go to my house, it is not that I am relaxed but I know that I gave everything and I am giving everything for this club, 120pc every day, every day.

The only thing we can do is to try to do everything in every game, to show great desire, to show great pride to finish the season in the best position in the table". Although he has one more year on his contract, few expect to see him in charge of Chelsea come August. "I am very sad for this situation", he said at his weekly news conference today. "Sometimes, it's very hard to sleep with these types of problem".

Gianluca Vialli, a former Chelsea manager and Juventus team-mate of Conte's, claims his old friend can not wait to leave the London club, primarily because of his lack of control over the Blues' transfer policy.

"I do not want to see one person try to give up", he said.

Vialli said Conte "can't wait to leave Chelsea", primarily owing to frustrations regarding his lack of control over transfer policy, but Conte explained the pair had not spoken since dining together last season.

A good performance, yes, but many times we have had a good performance and lost the game, or drew the game, many times we've had a good performance but not won the game.

Chelsea will pay tribute to former captain Ray Wilkins, who died this week, during their Premier League clash against West Ham United tomorrow. We are talking about improving but now another not positive result as we drew. you have to win this game. He was a legend for this club, an ambassador for football.
