Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich was expected to name Chelsea’s new manager before the end of this season and as expected the Russian Tycoon handed Antonio Conte the responsibility to manage Chelsea in the new season.
Confirmation of Antonio Conte as the new Chelsea manager for the coming season has come with lots of expectations and anticipations. With age catching up on some long time Chelsea players uncertainty about their Chelsea future abounds.
